Additional capacity and the new bus
Due to a lack of necessity and a shortage of drivers, we will be running our Saturday services with a single bus until further notice. We will of course keep this under review while monitoring passenger levels.
We would like to expand our services further, but to do so we need more volunteer drivers. Please see our volunteering page if you feel you might be able to help.
We run two 16-seat minibuses on timetabled services between Sedbergh, Dent and Kendal on Saturdays, between Sedbergh, Dent and Dent Station on Sundays (summer only), to Hawes Market on Tuesdays, between Kirkby Stephen and Kendal on Thursdays and to Kirkby Stephen on Fridays.
Concessionary bus passes are accepted on all routes. Many buses connect with trains on the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle railway line at Dent Station, Garsdale and Kirkby Stephen. This provides access to and from Dent, Sedbergh, the Howgills, Kendal, Hawes 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 Hawes, or visit Farfield Mill with its craft workshops and exhibitions and the Wensleydale Creamery to watch cheese being made.
See our TIMETABLES page for details.
We also offer a Private Hire service for registered charities and community groups.
We are a community venture run entirely by volunteers.
to provide a safe, reliable and courteous local bus run byvolunteers, serving those rural and urban communities centred on Sedbergh and Kirkby Lonsdale and not served by thecommercial bus companies.
