New ticket machines

New "Ticketer" touch screen ticket machines will be in use on both buses from Tuesday November 28th. These are being rolled out across all buses in Cumbria.

Please bear with us while we get used to the new technology.

New Kirkby Stephen to Kendal service

Additional capacity and new bus 

Our new bus (WD2) has come into service and will be used on the Tuesday Hawes service and to provide additional capacity on Saturdays. 

On Saturday the 10:50 from Sedbergh and the 16:15 from Kendal will be duplicated between Kendal and Sedbergh only. This will increase capacity to 32 seats in and out.


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.
