York Bus Forum: an independent voice for bus users

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.

Station Front Development – let’s make best use of space!

The demolition of Queen Street Bridge and the space it creates gives York a once in a lifetime opportunity to develop a major transport interchange at the railway station. But by being conservative, the Council are in danger of seeing this chance wasted.
York Bus Forum have developed more ambitious plans making the station a destination for all major bus services, improving pedestrian access and the safety and convenience of cyclists.
