Bus service changes for Ilkley Half on Sunday

Bus services will be disrupted by road closures for the Ilkley Half Marathon on Sunday 14th July, with buses unable to run to or from Ilkley for most of the morning.

Roads in Ilkley, Ben Rhydding and Addingham, along with the A65 between Ilkley and Addingham and the A59 at Bolton Bridge will all be effected - with most closing at 10.15am and reopening as the last runner passes.

The planned changes to local bus services this Sunday are as follows:

Keighley Bus service 62 

·       Journeys from Keighley at 1110 and 1210 will terminate at Addingham, Moor Park Way

·       Journeys from Ilkley at 1200 and 1300 will start from Addingham, Moor Park Way.

·       Ilkley will not be served on these journeys.

Cravenlink service 864

·       The 0925 journey from Bradford to Skipton & Malham will divert from Shipley non-stop to Skipton Bus Station. Menston, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Ilkley and Addingham will not be served on this journey.
