About Us

With a fleet of over 1,000 buses, around 3,500 staff and a network of over 200 routes serving Leeds, York, Calderdale, Huddersfield and Bradford and reaching out to Ilkley, Skipton, Otley, Greater Manchester, Burnley, Rochdale and Oldham we are the biggest bus operator in the region. We are part of FirstGroup, the international bus and rail company.

Our colour coded High Frequency services provide frequent, easy to use bus services ideal for commuters, shoppers, getting to school, visiting friends or simply getting around. In York, we operate the award winning Park and Ride service, which keeps over a million cars a year out of the City Centre. We also operate Metro's Mybus Yellow School buses and other school services.

We offer a range of tickets to save you money on your travel, including FirstDay, FirstWeek and FirstMonth, along with discounted travel for kids with FirstDayOut and for families with FirstDay Family & Friends. Whether you're a regular traveller or you use our buses once in a while, we've got a ticket to suit your needs and your wallet.

If you're looking for a Green Travel Plan that means business, we can help. Our revolutionary corporate travel scheme can save your employees money and help get cars off the road.

Our fleet is one of the youngest in the country – we have recently invested in nearly 100 brand new vehicles, including the latest Euro 5 engines and leather seats, for our network in Leeds. Hybrid vehicles, which produce lower emissions than regular vehicles also operate on our Scott Hall Road services and our new Hyperlink service connecting Bradford & Leeds includes free WiFi. Most of our buses are fully accessible, making travel easier for customers with impaired mobility or parents with buggies.

If you are a regular customer then thank you for travelling with us. If you haven't used the bus for a while, or are looking for an alternative to taking the car, then we look forward to welcoming you aboard very soon.
