Changes to bus services from Sunday

A number of bus timetable changes will take effect on Sunday (23 February 2020) as bus operators react to ongoing roadworks in the city centre and other issues.

The First Bus 74 service between Middleton and the city centre via Hunslet will see a revised route and timetable, with some journeys altered by around 10 minutes. Due to major works on Infirmary Street, this service will operate a circular route in Leeds City Centre and will no longer serve Infirmary Street. Journeys from Middleton will operate as now via Duke Street, York Street, Harper Street, Kirkgate, New Market Street, Duncan Street, to Boar Lane, returning via Mill Hill, Neville Street, Great Wilson Street, Hunslet Road then as normal route to Middleton.

The 10 service which replaced the 1 between the city centre and Beeston will see an improved evening timetable. On Monday to Saturday evenings between 8-10pm buses will run every 20 minutes instead of every 40 minutes. On Sunday evenings between 4:50-6pm buses will run every 15-20 minutes instead of every 40 minutes.

There will be minor timetable changes to the 2, 3, 3A, 12, 13, 13A, 51, 52 services. A revised timetable will be introduced on these routes to improve punctuality, with some journeys altered by around 5-10 minutes.

A revised route and timetable will be introduced on the 154 Middleton to Rothwell service operated by Squarepeg, with journeys altered by around 5-10 minutes. The morning journey will start from Middleton Thorpe Lane instead of Westerton Frosts Corner. The afternoon journey will start from Rothwell Commercial Street and run to an alternative route, via Wood Lane and Wakefield Road instead of Carlton, and via Thorpe Lane instead of Thorpe and East Ardsley. The new route will operate from Monday 24 February.
