Around 50% of Moorsbus passengers leave their car behind, so there are fewer vehicles on the roads, less air pollution for us all to breathe., and carbon footprint is reduced. The other 50% don’t have access to a car, so Moorsbus enables them to enjoy the National Park or do everyday journeys.
Moorsbus season is May 3rd to 29th September, on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays. It’s scheduled public transport; 27 or 44 seater buses, with wheelchair access, and ENCTS passes are accepted. All-day tickets for fare-payers cost £9.50, or you can buy cheap single fares. Up to 4 children travel free with a fare-payer. Dogs are welcome, but not on the seats! You can also buy or use our tickets on the EY 128, or Reliance 31X.
From Ryedale market towns you can get to lots of places including Hutton-le-Hole, Rievaulx Abbey, Danby National Park Centre, Sutton Bank, Rosedale and Dalby Forest. Moorsbus is also great for walking or running. “Suggested days out” leaflets, and timetables, are available from Libraries, or can be printed from www.moorsbus.org.
Moorsbus covers 25 – 50% of costs from fares and passes. The remainder is funded by passenger donations, Parish Councils, and other fundraising. Thanks to the help of many, we are slowly expanding our season and routes each year.
On board we also have a “donate ticket – not valid for travel” which really helps us. Moorsbus is organised by volunteers, and you can ring us on 01751 477216.
