The Forum celebrated three years of working for bus users in April 2019 and a special cake was cut by our former chair, Ray Walker and Councillor Andy D’Agorne, Deputy Leader of the Council and Executive Member for Transport.
Welcome to the website of York Bus Forum – the voice of bus users and potential users in and around York.
Our aim is “to get York people where they want to be, when they want to be there, in a manner that is reliable, comfortable and efficient”.
The Forum started with a public meeting in April 2016, when the City of York Council were trying to cut evening and Sunday bus services. The meeting was attended by 50+ people and eventually we were able to reduce the number of cuts. We have since established ourselves as a recognised stakeholder with the Council and have a good working relationship with their transport team and with bus operators.
We have established ourselves as the voice for bus users in York, working with the Council’s Transport Team. Five Parish Councils are now affiliated to the Forum and we are keen to encourage more to join us – it’s only £10 a year. Read about our latest news and updates here.
