Hello everyone,
we are planning to do the walk in the Yorkshire Dales in June. We are a group of four and will have a rented car which we will leave in one place. If we decide to skip a day tour or whatever happens, we might want to pick up the car in the middle of the trip; so are there any frequent bus lines running from on village to the other and how can I find out about them? haven't found anything helpful on the net yet...
thanks a lot!

Hi Christine

The buses run down the valleys, not over the tops, so you could, for example, get a bus from Askrigg to Aysgarth, but not from Askrigg to Reeth, unless you want a very long bus journey down to Leyburn, then Richmond and back up to Reeth. Also, some local bus routes have had their services reduced or cut recently, so it's always best to check before setting out on your walk. Your best bet are local taxi firms, which you will be able to find out about where you are staying. I know that there are taxi firms in Grassington, Hawes (near Askrigg) and Reeth. Taxis will be a lot quicker and more convenient, but will obviously cost quite a lot more than a bus.

Hope this helps
