Transdev York is one of seven companies within the
TransdevBlazefield group. Transdev Blazefield is owned by Transdev, the sixth largest bus operator in the UK. Formed in Summer 2008 this operation comprises the former Top Line Travel business which includes local school services and the York Citysightseeing franchise and the local bus operations of Veolia Transport. Both businesses were based at the same depot in Fulford near York, where the combined Transdev York operation is now operated from. This new operation further expands Transdev Blazefield's operations in the York area which include Yorkshire Coastliner's Leeds to Coast services and Harrogate & District's Harrogate Service. Buses are also available for hire for various events.
Local bus services
York Tour Buses are operated by Transdev York under the
City Sightseeingbrand. The service offers hop on / hop off service with a number of stops across the historic city. Most buses have a pre-recorded multi-lingual commentary however some buses carry a live guide. There are two routes, Route A and Route B, each offer a clockwise circuit of the city with Route B serving the racecourse and Holiday Inn. Most buses are partially and fully open top, with some low floor vehicles recently introduced. City Sightseeing tours run all year round (except December 24th-26th).
Buses in the fleet include:
All these buses carry York CitySightseeing Livery:
*The old yellow closed top
MCW Metrobuses, including the 105 seater of Topline travel are now stored at Blackburn.
*Not all of the Veolia vehicles have been retained, a number of single and double deck vehicles have left the fleet.
*A vehicle shortage at the beginning of September 2008, shortly after the operation went under the
Transdevname, saw the closed top Metrobuses see service on normal passenger routes.
The company operates buses in two different liveries. Local bus services are operated in a red livery with
Transdevbranding and the York CitySightseeing livery which is red with illustrations of York landmarks and white Yorkshire roses.
As well as Single and Return Fares, a number of fare saver tickets are available.
