CHANGES TO AIRPORT BUS SERVICES 737,747,757 FROM 8 MARCH 2015

by rykdownes on 13 February, 2015

You may be aware that changes were made in October 2014 to Yorkshire Tiger services between Leeds Bradford Airport and Bradford including switching the Airport – Harrogate section of the 737 to the 747. This was done to improve punctuality and resolve a number of operational issues. Unfortunately, not all issues have been fully resolved and, as a result of this, the timetables will be readjusted from 8 March 2015 in order to alleviate this problem.

Changes to services 737 & 747 will consist of:

* Minor changes to off peak intermediate times;
* Significantly increased running time Monday to Friday am/pm peak;
* Changes to evening/Sunday timetable as a result of the removal of interworking between Services 757/737/747;
* The provision of an additional bus in the afternoon peak in order to ensure that an hourly service is maintained on each route.

Service 757 (Leeds – Airport) will be improved and enhanced as follows:

* Increased end to end running time on most journeys;
* Redistributed point to point running times;
* Significantly increased running time Mon-Fri AM/PM peak .

757 goes 24/7

* Daily overnight hourly service introduced between Leeds Railway Station and Airport between 0200 and 0400.

Improved evening and Sunday services

* Daily evening service strengthened from every 60 minutes to every 30 minutes;
* Evening service extended until 0200;
* Sunday daytime service strengthened from every 30 minutes to every 20 minutes.
