Yorkshire Coastliner is a bus company based in Malton in North Yorkshire, England. It is owned by the Blazefield Group (itself part of Transdev) who also own, amongst others, Harrogate & District and Keighley & District in Yorkshire.

Its blue buses provide a regular service between Leeds, Tadcaster, York and Malton, and also serve the coastal resorts of Scarborough, Whitby, Bridlington and Filey, as well as the popular inland town of Thornton-le-Dale on the North Yorkshire Moors National Park.

Routes

Fleet

In early 2006, the company became 100% low-floor when 6 Volvo B7TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini entered service, they intended to have 7 of them but the last one was diverted to Harrogate & District as a replacement for the Volvo B7RLE single decker on the 36 (Ripon-Harrogate-Leeds). Yorkshire Coastliner still got a fully low floor fleet, as a replacement for the diverted bus came from Harrogate & District, which was a Plaxton President-bodied Volvo B7TL (441, Y711HRN), it has been refurbished and repainted into the 'new' Yorkshire Coastliner livery introduced in 2004 for the first 4 Volvo B7TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini. The company also has single deckers, 6 Wrightbus Eclipse Urban Volvo B7RLEs used on routes where double deckers cannot be used.

In 2008, Yorkshire Coastliner replaced all of the single decker B7RLEs and some of the older double decker buses with 10 new Volvo B9TL/Wright Eclipse Gemini. This will mean the whole Coastliner service will be run with double deckers by summer this year.

Moorsbus

Yorkshire Coastliner parciptaes in the Moorsbus scheme. It accepts Moorsbus tickets between Malton & Whitby on Moorsbus dates. In addition to this, Yorkshire Coastliner freedom tickets are accepted on all Moorsbus services.
