Travel from York to Leeds for £1 – Plush new bus service’s opening offer
A new bus service offering non-stop trips between York and Leeds launches on Sunday (March 27) – and for the first week you can travel between the two cities for £1.
More details on the Cityzap website
Cityzap is “a new concept in intercity bus travel”. It will deliver non-stop trips between York and Leeds every 30 minutes, with last buses at weekends as late as 3am.
Drivers will use sat-nav equipment to make sure they always choose the quickest route and avoid congested areas.
Cityzap opening offers include any ride for £1 to all customers until Saturday, April 2.
Train travellers are being encouraged to switch, with the offer of free travel through April for all those who hold a valid rail ticket between the two cities.
- £8 return – any day, any time
- £6.50 adult one way – any day, any time
- £4 under 16 one way – any day, any time
Listened to passengers
Students are also able to take advantage of a £1 fare until the end of April by presenting their NUS card when they board.
Alex Hornby, CEO at Transdev, said:
Essentially, often what they expect from their car, except we are giving them more.
In Cityzap we believe we have met and exceeded their aims, with a very powerful alternative for the motorist, given the use of sat-nav and empowering our drivers to decide the quickest route every time.
There is also a plan for an app which will track where the buses are, “giving customers the knowledge they need”.

I like badgers
£1 is good value of course, £6.50 less so. I’ll stick with the tried and tested for now.
