A route on Ripon’s city-wide bus service is being extended to serve residents living in the Ure Bank area.

Launched last April, the service has guaranteed funding for four years and the prospect of more to follow.

Councillor Peter Horton, chair of Ripon City Council’s transport group, told the Stray Ferret:

“The Ure Bank extension has been approved by North Yorkshire Council and will come on stream from April.

“Usage of the bus service is steadily increasing across the four routes that serve the city and we are delighted that its reach is being extended to take in another residential area in Ripon.”

The runs from Monday to Saturday and city council leader Andrew Williams, who is also the North Yorkshire Council member for the Minster and Moorside division, said:

“We have been able to make this happen with the support of the new unitary authority, in addition to section 106 monies from retail and residential developments in Ripon and money from the city council’s contingency fund.

“Looking beyond the first four years, we will be seeking further section 106 contributions to support the service as more residential schemes, such as West Lane, come on stream.”
