New brand will be rolled out to replace K-Line routes

Yorkshire Tiger will now operate a striking new Tiger Blue brand for services which were previously operated as K-Line.

There has been substantial investment into the refreshed new look, including luxury interiors with wood effect floors, new driver uniforms and ‘blue tiger’ seating.

The Tiger Blue buses were launched on service 324 on the October 31, operating the Meltham and Netherton route. Buses will run up to every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday and the ticket price will be £2.70, providing great value for unlimited travel.

Steve Ottley, General Manager for Yorkshire Tiger, said: “We are really excited about the extension of the Yorkshire Tiger family, and we are delighted to be trialling free Wi-Fi and USB power sockets on the 324 service. If this proves popular we will certainly look into rolling this out to other routes as we are committed to providing a good quality, local bus service for our customers.”

Over the coming months the Tiger Blue brand will be rolled out to other K-Line routes.

Yorkshire Tiger currently operates over 100 buses across Bradford, Leeds, Halifax, Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Wakefield.
