***Updated for 2024***Moorsbus - Supporting sustainable travel

Make the most of the Moors with Moorsbus!

Every weekend in June, July, August and September (including August Bank Holiday Monday) visitors can travel throughout the North York Moors thanks to this superb and long-standing bus service.

Moorsbus, a not-for-profit community interest company aims to improve accessibility via public transport allowing guests to discover this wonderful area of outstanding natural beauty without a car. A concept which Heather the Hut wholeheartedly supports.

Reduces the emissions on the environment

This type of sustainable tourism not only reduces the impact of emissions on the environment, it also boosts the local economy by encouraging visitors to spend their money within the National Park. Furthermore, cafes and shops can sign up to a ‘Friends of Moorsbus’ where they receive discounts in exchange for free advertising on their websites.

Run entirely by volunteers, with friendly, professional drivers and a modern fleet of vehicles, their fares and bus passes make up only part their running costs. In addition, Moorsbus relies on donations from passengers, parish councils, business trusts and other sources which all go towards strengthening its community credentials.

Discovering the wonders that the National Park has to offer both residents and guests, whilst preserving the natural beauty of this part of the Yorkshire countryside is what makes Moorsbus a truly unique transport network.

Whether you are travelling between Teesside, Hambleton, Rosedale Abbey, York or elsewhere, single fares start from £5.00 whilst all day tickets, valid on the entire network cost £2.50 per child and £9.50 per adult.

For further information, see the Moorsbus website, or visit them on Facebook or Twitter for updates on their fares and timetables. Alternatively, if you prefer to speak to someone directly, they can be contacted on 01751 477216.
