The Esk Valley Railway runs from Middlesbrough, along the beautiful Esk Valley, to the bustling seaside resort of Whitby. It now connects with Moors Bus Services at Danby Station to the Danby Moors Centre, Guisborough (via Castleton) and Pickering (via Blakey Ridge). You can also take the Moors Bus and connect with trains to Whitby and Middlesbrough.
Middlesbrough connects with Transpennine services from Manchester & Leeds and Northern services from Bishop Auckland, Darlington, Newcastle & Carlisle while York is on the main East Coast line.
Whitby is connected to Scarborough via the Arriva bus service X93 and to Malton with the Coastliner 840.
East Yorkshire Motor Services, our good friends from Hull, are once again operating their excellent Moors Explorer service on some Sundays and Bank Holidays this summer. The ME1 serves Hessle, Hull, Beverley, Norton/Malton, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and the Moors Centre at Danby. It will run on the 27th and 28th of May, 22nd and 29th July, and the 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th and 27th of August 2018.
Our Moor Rovers tickets may be bought and accepted on the Moors Explorer between Norton and Danby, and in return the EYMS Go Anywhere day ticket is accepted on Moorsbus services. Please note, though, that the ENCTS bus pass does not allow free travel on this service, although a reduced fare is available.
Operated by East Yorkshire Motor Service’s sister company, the 128 gives a very useful link between our services at Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside and Pickering. It provides access to Scarborough, and the villages along the foot of the North York Moors, such as the ever popular Thornton le Dale, as well as the Arriva 93X service to Whitby, Guisborough and Middlesbrough at Scarborough. You can buy and use a Moors Rover ticket on this service as well, anywhere between Thornton Dale and Helmsley, on Moorsbus operating days.
There are other public transport services in the area too. See below for some suggestions. Some operate all year round, though there tend to be fewer services in the winter months.
