Leeds Buses 2021
   
The Independent Transport Videos cameras re-visit Yorkshire with a two part DVD which concentrates on buses in and around West Yorkshire, the first part sees buses operating within Leeds City Centre, whilst the second goes out and about around small hamlets & villages. (Barwick in Elmet / Aberford / East Keswick / Woodlesford / Rothwell etc )

Disc one comprises of operators :-  First Leeds / Bradford / Halifax, Arriva Yorkshire, Transdev Harrogate & District / Keighley & District / Coastliner Malton & York with City Zap, Stagecoach Yorkshire, smaller interesting operators comprise of Connexions Buses ( Harrogate Coach Travel ) of Tockwith, C T Plus , Tetleys  & Square Peg of Leeds,the vehicles operated by these companies varies with Wrights / ADL & Optare being the most popular brands.  First Leeds purchased nine Yutong E10 electric buses for use on the 5 route from Halton Moor to Albion Street which goes via the Leeds General Infirmary Terminating in Albion Street.   Park & Ride services have become popular with sites at  Elland Road / Temple Green / Stourton the original Park & Ride site in Alwoodley still exists but doesn't have  branded vehicles and is run as a normal service to the city.  Leeds City Transport closed the tramway system on the 7th November 1959 it is interesting to see that in 2021 the track is still being removed, the main reason for this being the re development of much of the City centre the widening of pavements, removal of traffic islands and introduction of Bus Gates, all this to reduce the Co2 levels.
 
The second part sees vehicles operating in tranquil areas of West Yorkshire some of the most scenic see First Leeds operating the X98 / X99 services to Wetherby, the X99 passing through East Keswick, the 64 service  from Leeds to Aberford  operated by Connexions Buses passes the Charles Henry Roe public house in Crossgates as well as passing the former site of the factory now private houses before passing through Barwick in Elmet on its way to Aberford.  First Leeds currently have depots in Bramley on Henconner Lane and Donisthorpe Street in Hunslet, it is interesting to note that Leeds City Transport previously had premises on Donisthorpe Street.  Wetherspoons opened a pub on Austhorpe Road in Crossgates and  named it after the bus & coach builder Charles Henry Roe, Malcolm has provided several images which are displayed within the pub one view was taken in 1970 when a Roe bodied Daimler CVG6 can be seen passing the premises which is now occupied by the public house, this image supports a history of Charles Henry Roe.
   
We hope that you enjoy this two disc DVD which has a vast and varied variety of company colour schemes as well as giving a look at some of the historic buildings, the Corn Exchange  the Town Hall but to name but two.
