BUS SERVICE CHANGES INFIRMARY STREET AND PARK ROW

Please find below information regarding bus service changes in Infirmary Street and Park Row that start on Sunday 23 February 2020.  

“The works are part of the Connecting Leeds programme that will provide an improved environment for pedestrians, cyclists and for public transport users. 

Infirmary Street works are scheduled to be completed in December 2020.  Yorkshire Water is also replacing the water main in Park Row and the work should be completed in March 2020. 

These works mean that some bus services will be relocated and the bus stops where people regularly catch or alight from services may have changed.  

To prevent passengers being delayed by congestion, it is necessary to reduce the extent to which some services cross the City Centre.  This may require them to walk a little further, but should hopefully help make their service more reliable than recently experienced.  

Some bus services from the East, Seacroft (40), Middleton(74), Aberford (64) will terminate at the eastern part of the City Centre, similarly some services from the West, Greengates (35), Halifax (508) will terminate in Park Row and not continue to Leeds bus station.  These actions will reduce the number of buses on Boar Lane which has experienced congestion in recent months. 

Once all the work is completed it is hoped that normal bus routes will be resumed.

Full customer information regarding these changes can be found on the Metro website via this link – https://wymetro.com/corporate/news/releases/leeds-city-centre-infirmary-street-and-park-row-improvements/.  Information has been posted at affected bus stops and on buses and Leeds BID and First Bus staff will be on the ground prior to the closure and for the first few days to support bus customers too.  West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Leeds City Council staff will be closely monitoring the situation.”
