Getting around...

The District has good rail and fairly good bus services, even in the evenings, so nobody has to risk their licence or miss the fun. There are some good fare deals from the major bus operator Arriva as well as the various cards from Metro. Latest buses between the major towns usually leave between 2230 and 2300. Our links page will take you to the Passenger Transport Authority's site.

You can e-mail us for a copy of our Calder & Hebble Ale Trail which uses the 278 Wakefield - Halifax bus service. (.pdf file approx. 600kb)
