    Default Yorkshire Rider - Leeds

    I've not posted a report for awhile but yesterday I was out and about in Leeds and ended up here.

    First Leeds is one of the bus companies serving the area of West Yorkshire, England. It forms part of FirstGroup, a company operating transport services across the British Isles and in North America. The company operates within the area covered by Metro, a public body responsible for helping to co-ordinate public transport services in the West Yorkshire area. Following bus deregulation in 1986, the MetroBus (the West Yorkshire PTE) fleet was renamed Yorkshire Rider Ltd. The livery changed from verona green and buttermilk to a bright green and cream livery and a new logo with was a stylised "YR" logo, plus the name "Yorkshire Rider", with an area on the logo that incorporated the town in which the garage for that bus was located. In October 1988 Yorkshire Rider was bought by its management for 23 million.

    On 18 May 2008 the Kirkstall Road depot was closed after 111 years of public transport use and operations moved to a new complex in Hunslet. The site will be redeveloped as part of Leeds City Council's Kirkstall Road Renaissance Area project and is certainly in need of re-development at the moment. That or demolition!

    It looks as though ever since closure there as been a steady stream of people in there and on Saturday morning I nearly ran into a couple of chaps helping themselves to some bits and pieces (though I can't imagine what there is still anything left of any value) but they dispersed and I continued my mooch.
