Members of the public have been urged to make use of a bus service which will operate around Keighley on Boxing Day.

Bronte Country Tourism Partnership member Graham Mitchell said the service was secured following requests from Keighley Town Council and the Airedale Shopping Centre.

“This is as a trial, and if these buses are little used or not used it may not happen again,” he warned.

Transport authority Metro has selected five routes and agreed to fund the services, to be operated on contract by Transdev Keighley & District.

The routes from Keighley Bus Station are 66A Airedale Hospital, 703 Braithwaite, 717 Oakworth, 719 Bracken Bank, and 760 Keighley-Bingley-Leeds.

The Boxing Day buses will be in addition to the separate Christmas Day bus service in Keighley, which is in its 19th year and is operated by volunteers.
