Bus services 900 / 901

Following consultation and customer feedback, a revised route and timetable was introduced on Services 900 and 901 between Huddersfield and Hebden Bridge from Monday 30 January 2012.

These changes were designed to enhance one of the routes and to improve value for money by not operating poorly used journeys.


The services continued to be operated by K-Line.


The key changes to the service included:

  • An overall enhancement by increasing the service level to hourly, Monday to Saturday daytime.
  • Operating most journeys via the existing 901 route, thus resulting in shorter journey times.
  • A small number of journeys continued to operate via Pole Moor, Buckstones and Krumlin (service 900) in order to maintain a direct link to and from Huddersfield on Mondays to Saturdays. The seasonal Sunday/Bank Holiday services continued to operate as service 900.
  • Stainland village was served hourly by service 901 improving services in the area. Together with existing services 537/538, there was 2 buses per hour Monday to Saturday daytime between Huddersfield and Stainland, which restored the pre-January 2010 service level.
  • Krumlin / Ripponden were served by a new hourly service E7. The changes improved links to Ripponden from the Barkisland / Krumlin area.
  • Journeys on both services 900 and 901 no longer served the railway stations at Huddersfield and Hebden Bridge.
  • The Sunday and Bank Holiday service continued to operate along the route of service 900, operating each Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday from Easter Sunday until the first Sunday in October.


The full range of Metro's pre-paid tickets are welcome on this service within West Yorkshire and ENCS Concessionary passes are also accepted on these services after 0930 Monday to Friday and all day Saturday.
