Bus Information Strategy 2019-24 - Have Your Say.
In March 2019, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority (WYCA) voted to scale back its pocket timetable booklets over the next five years,
WYCA is a group of leading councillors and officers from West Yorkshire councils, plus York, that works in conjunction with bus companies and subsidises some services – will focus on delivering information via digital means, such as on mobile devices.
It also intends to phase out offering real-time information via text message and slimmed down on printed timetables, although cheaper-to-produce timetables will still be made available to people who want them.
WYCA says its new Bus Information Strategy reflects the increasing preference of the county’s passengers for using online bus service information.
During the last 12 months almost two million people have used its website more than 5.85 million times and downloaded 3.2 million bus timetables.
More than 500,000 people used the website’s Journey Planner to co-ordinate almost 1.3m journeys.
In the Bradford district, two drop-in events will be held on Friday 9th August at Keighley Bus Station, and on Thursday 22nd August at Bradford Interchange, both are from 10am to 2pm.
