Connexionsbuses[1] is a bus operator based in York.


Harrogate Coach Travel was established in 2002 by Craig and Julie Temple to operate local services in the York area, to Ripon via Great Hammerton, before expanding to operate tendered services for North Yorkshire County Council and the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive.

Harrogate Coach Travel also operated the X54 service from York to Harrogate, but that service was withdrawn in August 2010,[2] which left the X52 and X53 services to Ilkley and Guiseley as their only Harrogate services.

In March 2011, the business was rebranded as Connexionsbuses.[3]

In April 2011, route X70 was introduced between Harrogate and Wetherby and several local services in Harrogate under contract from North Yorkshire County Council.[4]

At the same time, the North Yorkshire contract to run buses between York and Ripon was lost, and Harrogate Coach Travel commenced operating joint services from York to Ripon and Wetherby in partnership with Eddie Brown Tours.[5]

In August 2013 Connexionsbuses commenced operating routes 780 Knaresborough - Wetherby and 923 Otley - Tadcaster under contract to the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive.[6]


Connexionsbuses operate services to York, Boroughbridge, Ripon, Guiseley, Ilkley, Otley, Knaresborough and Wetherby. From August 2010, the company expanded more in the Ilkley and Otley areas of West Yorkshire, when they take over the Ilkley and Otley local services from First West Yorkshire and the 940 service to Holt Park from TLC Travel.[7] The company started more services in the Wetherby area in April 2011, linking the town to Harrogate and York.
