Scrap The Proposed Changes To The 262 Bus Service
Under proposed plans in February 2021, the 262 bus service in Huddersfield is changing into the 261 (operated by Arriva) which will run from Huddersfield to Cleckheaton via Dalton, Kirkheaton and Mirfield.
This means it will now only run hourly Monday to Saturday! On Sundays it will be every 2 hours meaning there will only be 4 buses throughout the whole day!!
The residents who live along this route are opposed to these changes as it results in a reduction in bus frequency and will not provide an adequate enough service.
We demand that these proposals are scrapped and encourage the local transport authority to provide the relevant funding to maintain the current service.
