Travel by bus for just £1 this Boxing Day

West Yorkshire Combined Authority will once again be funding bus services across West Yorkshire this Boxing Day, Sunday 26th December.

Working together with the county’s bus operators, customers will only have to pay £1 for a single journey, while accompanied children will be able to travel for free.

Buses will serve over 80 routes into town and city centres, retail locations and hospitals thanks to Combined Authority funding.

Many key services across Huddersfield will be running on Boxing Day. MCards, ENCTS concessionary passes and bus operator season tickets will be valid, as well as the £1 single ticket.

Services across Huddersfield which will be running from 9am until 6pm are: D1 Denby Darts, 185, 202, 203, 302, 306, 310, 314, 324, 328, 363, 370 and 372. Individual timetables for each route can be downloaded from

Speaking about the return of the Boxing Day services, West Yorkshire Mayor Tracy Brabin said:

“I’m delighted to have been able to work with local bus operators to introduce this new fare this year.

“I know that many families like to get out on Boxing Day, which is why we are providing services on all main bus routes at a special price of £1 per journey. Under 19s can travel free if accompanied by an adult and all bus passes and MCards can be used.

“But if you do take the bus, whether on Boxing Day or later, do please remember to wear a face covering while on board and to pay with a card or mobile phone if possible.

“Up until 2007, when these services were first publicly funded, no bus services ran on Boxing Day and that would still be the case without our support to provide vital journeys to connect families and friends, and to enable hospital visits.”
