The Connecting the Dales project ran from July 2011 to March 2015, coordinated by DITA, the Dales Integrated Transport Alliance. Information and images about the project and a comprehensive final report can be found at www.dalesconnect.net.
In essence, DITA sought to bring together transport authorities, operators, transport passengers and the general public to pump prime innovative transport initiatives.
DITA helped to establish 10 Your Dales Hubs throughout this project, including one at Pateley Bridge, operated by Nidderdale Plus, providing information and advice about all local transport options, including bus timetables, cycle routes, walks and internet access for wider transport needs.
DITA also provided funding to support the purchase of the Nidderdale High School minibus, which is part of the Nidderdale Community Transport scheme, alongside the Community Car. if you have any transport questions or needs, contact the Nidderdale Plus office for assistance or to book the Community Car – tel 01423 714953.
