Funded by Thorpe Park Developments Ltd as part of its wider commitment to supporting sustainable transport opportunities and maximising accessibility across the estate, Arriva’s 165 and 164 bus services will run through Thorpe Park and The Springs providing a 15 minute frequency of services throughout the day, Monday to Saturday, with a slightly reduced frequency in the evenings, as well as on Sundays.
The bus services will provide convenient connections to nearby destinations including Cross Gates, Garforth, Sherburn, Selby, Kippax and Leeds City Centre. Arriva is offering a special family ticket price and £2 flat fares for all passengers.
Adam Varley, Development Director at Scarborough Group International (SGI), 50:50 joint venture partner of Thorpe Park Developments Ltd, said:
“We’re delighted that we’ve been able to reintroduce the bus services through Thorpe Park Leeds and The Springs. With over 6,500 people working on the site, and thousands of visitors each week to The Springs, there is a strong demand for sustainable public transport connections which, as the Park reaches its next phase of maturity and as we add further workspace and amenities, the demand will further intensify.”
A public summer fun day is scheduled to take place on Saturday 11th August at The Springs to promote the bus service with Arriva. Further details are to be announced soon.
