Coronavirus - WDB suspends it's services
We have suspended all our services for the foreseeable future. The safety of our service users and our volunteer drivers is our top priority and our buses do not enable us to safely implement the government requirements for social distancing.
We will keep the situation under review and hope to resume our services when that becomes possible again.
The buses have been purchased with grants from the Big Lottery Fund and the Garfield Weston Foundation, as well as from The Yorkshire Dales National Park Millennium Fund and the Friends of the Settle Carlisle Line.
Concessionary bus passes are accepted on all routes. Many buses connect with trains on the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle railway line at Dent Station and Kirkby Stephen. This provides access to and from Dent, Sedbergh, the Howgills, Kendal and Kirkby Stephen and gives local residents and visitors the opportunity to visit Kendal, Carlisle, Appleby, Settle, Skipton, Leeds and more.
Why not come and enjoy a walk in our stunning landscape, lots of footpaths from gentle to strenuous? Alternatively, explore our distinctive villages and market towns such as Dent, Sedbergh and Kirkby Stephen.
