Minibus Weekly Trips

Our community minibus is currently taking people on a weekly basis to either Skipton or Ripon. Both trips are made on market days in Skipton and Ripon.

The service leaves at 11.15 am from outside the Nidd Plus offices in Pateley Bridge and returns at 2.30 pm from Ripon and 2.15 pm from Skipton. This ensures that people living down the dale can connect with the service using the No. 24 bus.

The return fare is £8 for Ripon and £10 for Skipton. Bookings should be made by calling 01423 714953. Payment by card (preferred) can be taken in advance over the phone. Alternatively, you can pay by card or cash at the Nidd Plus offices on the day of your trip.

Do let us know if you are in a wheelchair as seats will need to be taken out to accommodate you. We can also arrange to pick you up from your home if necessary in advance of the departure time.

Users of the service need to fill in a registration form as the service is run under a Section 19 Permit. We will provide you with a paper form to fill in before you make your first journey.
