Thank you to all those who use our services in 2017, you make Moorsbus what it is.
Or good friends East Yorkshire Motor Services are running the EYMS ME1 Moors Explorer again on some summer Sundays and Bank Holidays this year. Their bus runs from Hull to Danby, via Beverley, Malton, Pickering and Kirkbymoorside. Once again, our tickets will be valid on their services and theirs on ours. You'll also now be able to buy and use a Moors Rover ticket on this service anywhere between Norton (Malton) and Danby Moors Centre. The Moors Explorer will run on 9 days in 2017. The dates are 28th/29th May, 23rd/30th July, and 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th and 28th August. 2017 Timetable here.
Please contact EYMS for further details.
