The Craven Connection

580, 581, 582:- The Craven Connection: Skipton - Settle - Ingleton - Kirkby Lonsdale - Lancaster

75:- The Craven Connection: Skipton - Malham (Saturdays Only)

The Craven Connection is our flagship service, providing a through bus service between Lancaster and Skipton for the first time in over 30 years. From Lancaster it runs along the Lune Valley to Kirkby Lonsdale before heading to Settle and finally Skipton, providing an essential lifeline for the many villages along the way. An adult day ticket is just £11.00 or £7.00 for a child. Concessionary passes are accepted as per the issuer's guidelines. We look forward to welcoming you on board.

Owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Craven Connection is running the following amended timetable.

Unfortunately service 75 Skipton - Malham has been temporarily suspended. We look forward to being able to reinstate it after the lockdown period comes to an end.
