A new bus service is being set up to take shoppers to two of the most popular shopping centres.

Starting in February, The 214 will travel between Birstall Retail Park and the White Rose Shopping Centre.

The new service, which will run between 9am and 4pm on an hourly basis, is supported by West Yorkshire Combined Authority and has been welcomed by Coun Neil Dawson who has campaigned for the new route.

He said: “I know there is a need for this service and the fact that it has now been introduced by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority

is great news.

“It is an issue that has been raised many times by residents at my surgeries, and I am pleased that my campaigning on their behalf has been successful. Both these shopping centres should be available to everyone, not just people who have cars.

“Public transport is also a big environmental benefit for everyone.”

The 214 will travel from Birstall Retail Park to Morley town centre and onto the White Rose Centre.

The route will go from: Birstall Retail Park, A62, Wakefield Road, Bruntcliffe Road, Fountain Street, Corporation Street, Queensway, Wellington Street to Morley Town Hall. Queen Street, Albion Street, Commercial Street, Middleton Road, Wide Lane, A653 Dewsbury Road to the White Rose. Return from White Rose Centre via A653 Dewsbury Road, Middleton Road, Fountain Street, Corporation Street, Queensway, Morley Town Hall, Queen Street, Queensway, Corporation Street, Fountain Street, Bruntcliffe Road, Wakefield Road, A62 to Birstall Retail Park.
