Bus Hotspots

West Yorkshire Combined Authority is working together with the City Region’s major bus companies, Arriva, First, Transdev and the Association of Bus Operators in West Yorkshire on a new ambitious partnership, Bus 18. The Bus 18 Delivery Programme involves a number of work streams, including Punctuality and Reliability - a programme of works to key junctions across West Yorkshire (Bradford, Calderdale, Kirklees, and Wakefield) to improve bus journey times and user experience.

The programme aims to deliver benefits to bus passengers that can be realised in a short/medium timeframe, by March 2019.

The improvements to the public transport infrastructure ultimately seeks to encourage the use of an alternative, more sustainable mode of transport for car users, and an improved experience for those that rely on bus travel/public transport.
