Welcome

Thank you for taking a moment to look at our website, here you will find details of our upcoming bus depot tours.

The YWBC was formed in 2019 to provide fellow enthusiasts with a chance to visit bus companies and ride aboard some truely wonderful vehicles which are normally beyond our daily reach as well as offering excursions to a number of bus rallies across the country at an affordable price.

You don't need to be a member of the Yorkshire Woollen Bus Club to join any of our depot tours, however if you become a member you will recieve a discount aboard everyone of our depot tours.

Memberships are valid for 12 months and are great value as they are only £12 a year for everyone, application forms are available aboard any of our depot tours and excursions.

The Cumbrian Crusader

We at YWBC understand that its sometimes its hard to attend those popular bus rallies in other areas so this year for we will be offering our fellow enthusiasts an easy and cheaper option by offering a number of excursions.

One of which will be the annual Cumbrian Easter vintage bus running day held at Brough and Kirkby Stephen on Sunday 12th April 2020.

This will be just one of our excursions to popular bus rallies on the events calendar for 2020 that we are aiming to attend.

We will start with a pick up at 8:00am from Union Street in Wakefield next to the bus station, there will also be a second pick up at 8:30am from York Street (bus stop F5) next to the Leeds City bus station and the best bit is that its only £20 per person return, payable on the day.

You don't need to pre-book or reserve a place, simply turn up on the day and there is no need to be a member of any group or society to join this excursion, nor do you need to be invited to join us as all are welcome.
