Adam Varley from Scarborough Group International, a partner of Thorpe Park Developments Ltd, said: “We’re delighted that we’ve been able to reintroduce the bus services through Thorpe Park Leeds and The Springs.

"With over 6,500 people working on the site, and thousands of visitors each week to The Springs, there is a strong demand for sustainable public transport connections which, as the park reaches its next phase of maturity and as we add further workspace and amenities, the demand will further intensify.”

A public summer fun day is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 11, at The Springs to promote the bus service with Arriva, further details of which are yet to be announced
