  1. Absolute joke. First they want to shut Cottingley train station. Now they want to give us an inadequate bus service.
    Leeds City Council don’t give a damn about the people who live in Cottingley.

  2. I think one bus every 30 minutes is a poor service anyway never mind cutting it down to one bus every 60 minutes ! I have on occasions used the 86 bus which is one every 30 minutes and one every 60 minutes on Sundays – and sometimes these run late or miss altogether. It one improve things if they were every 20 minutes.
