Car Free Friday

With Harrogate Bus Company

The Harrogate Bus Company have joined together with Zero Carbon Harrogate to do their bit to reduce car journeys and congestion.

2 can travel on 1 Harrogate day ticket for £4.70 (all over town including to/from Knaresborough, Wetherby, Ripley & Pannal) every Friday, starting this week.

Our CEO Alex Hornby said;

“It’s vital that as a community we do all we can to reduce carbon emissions. I’m proud to be part of the district’s Climate Change Coalition Board, as we work together to find sustainable answers to the growing issue of air pollution where we live.

“Our proposals to fully convert our bus fleet to zero-emission electric power in the coming years will make a significant contribution, but right now we can all do our bit to drive down carbon emissions simply by signing up to the campaign pledge to leave the car at home for just one day a week.

“As well as the benefit to our local environment, choosing the bus makes sense in lots more ways – it’s a lot less stressful than driving, and with a full day’s travel anywhere for two people travelling together within Harrogate, Knaresborough, Wetherby and as far as Harewood and Ripley on the 36 at only £4.70 on Car Free Fridays, it’s a lot cheaper than driving into town and paying for parking.”
