All aboard for a brighter commuting future!

That was the message at the launch of a new Leeds-Bradford bus service called Hyperlink.

Transport firm First will be running a fleet of modern, extra-long vehicles on the busy 72 route through Armley, Bramley, Stanningley and Thornbury from this Sunday. (Oct 28)

First is introducing the service in partnership with West Yorkshire passenger transport authority Metro, Leeds City Council and Bradford Council.

Dave Alexander, First’s regional managing director in the north of England, hailed Hyperlink as an “exciting, strategically important project”.

The launch took place in Bradford’s Centenary Square.
