Bus Services to and from Draughton
784 Service: Skipton – Draughton- Addingham – Ilkley – Burley in Wharfedale – Otley
The former X84 through service between Skipton and Leeds ceased to operate at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. From 13 July 2020 it is replaced by an hourly Monday to Saturday 784 service between Skipton and Otley.
See the timetable here:
Passengers wishing to travel between Draughton and Leeds will have to connect in Otley Bus Station with a truncated X84 or X85 service for onward or return travel, or transfer to or from rail services in Ilkley.
Bus operator First Leeds has said that an analysis of passenger journeys and traffic congestion “pinch points” has led to these changes and will make timetables more reliable.
Bus times are displayed in the Bus Shelter and on the bus-stop display board. They can also be downloaded from www.metro.com/buses/timetables or www.firstgroup.com/leeds/plan-journey-timetables. Timetables may change without notice. There are no Sunday or Bank Holiday Monday service, or on Christmas, Boxing or New Year’s Days.
