Mayor of West Yorkshire steps in to fund Boxing Day bus services

12 December 2022

Boxing Day bus services are back this year thanks to the Mayor of West Yorkshire, Tracy Brabin, who is funding services across the region.

Festive travellers who need to get to and from work, attend sporting fixtures, meet up with family and friends will be able to across West Yorkshire by bus – allowing passengers to leave the car at home and enjoy everything that West Yorkshire has to offer over the festive period.

Between 9am and 6pm on Monday 26 December, buses will serve over 80 routes, up to every 30 minutes, into main town and city centres, hospitals, and shopping centres.

The Mayor’s Fares mean single tickets will be a maximum of £2, and all MCards, Senior, Disabled and Blind Person’s Passes will be valid, as will individual bus operator season tickets. Passengers planning on making three or more journeys on Boxing Day can buy an MCard DaySaver for just £4.50 and save even more.

Tracy Brabin, Mayor of West Yorkshire said:

“We’re helping people get to where they need to be this Boxing Day by funding vital bus services to keep West Yorkshire moving.

“As people across the region face an extraordinary cost of living crisis, we are doing what we can to help communities stay connected this festive period - giving a lifeline to those who may rely on buses to get to work or to see family or friends.”
