are running every 15 minutes to Knaresborough (svc 1 etc) then variously to the estates, every 30 minutes to Jennyfield (3), every 30 to Dene Park (2A), every hour to Bilton (2) and every hour to Pannal Ash. And that's just the town routes. Service 1 has its own brand whilst the others are marketed as "Harrogate Connect".
is every 30, the 770 to Wetherby and Leeds is every hour and thee are four journeys to Pateley Bridge. Pretty impressive by today's paltry Sunday standards.
Apart from the occasional National Express interloper ..
... the other Sunday route is the 737 via the airport to Bradford.
This and the two other airport rotes (747 direct from Airport to Bradford and 757 to Leeds) are operated by Centrebus now with a strong foothold on West Yorkshire.
5 passengers alighted and 5 boarded, none of them dressed or burdened by luggage for a flight! Perhaps that's why Harrogate and District withdrew from commercial operation of the route they started but recently with Dales and District on tender as route 767. The 737 also replaces the former service 653 from Bradford to Harrogate extended in the past to Knaresbrough on Sundays.
So far so good.
The next question to be asked by your fearless investigator is, "What about information?" An initial glance across the road from the bus station stands is typically depressing ...
... and that gold coloured notice on the door confirms those first impressions.
But, as Scarlett O'Hara might say, "tomorrow is another day" ...
... and things are much better than might be supposed.
P.S. fbb has not forgotten his day in Sheffield (Monday 12th November) and the associated excitement (?). More "Sheffield" will follow in due course.
