Transport in North Yorkshire

North Yorkshire is home to three motorways: the A1/A1 (M), which serves as the area’s main north-south road, is the area’s only motorway, though the A66 (M) is also to be found near Darlington, whilst a short stretch of the M62 passes Egg borough. The A168/A19, A64, A66 and A174 are the region’s other nationally maintained trunk routes.

Many of North Yorkshire’s railway lines were cut by Dr Beeching in the 1960s, but the East Coast Main Line still passes through the region, connecting it with London – via a high speed rail link from Sunderland – to the south and to Edinburgh in the north. East Coast, First TransPennine Express and Grand Central operate passenger services along this route, while First TransPennine Express run additional services on the branching York to Scarborough and Northallerton-Eaglescliffe Lines. The remaining lines are operated by Northern Rail, including routes to Hull and Whitby. A number of heritage railways also operate along smaller lines in the area.

Heritage railways within North Yorkshire include the North Yorkshire Moors Railway between Pickering and Grosmont, which opened in 1973, the Derwent Valley Light Railway near York, and the Embassy and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway. The Wensleydale Railway, which started operating in 2003, runs services between Leeming Bar and Redmire along a former freight-only line. The medium term aim to operate into Northallerton station on the ECML once agreement can be reached with Network Rail, whilst the longer term aim to re-instate the full line west via Hawes to Garsdale on the Settle-Carlisle line.

York railway station is the largest station in the county with 11 platforms and is a major tourist attraction in its own right. The station is immediately adjacent to the world famous National Railway Museum.

As well as long distance coach services operated by National Express and Megabus local bus service operators include Arriva, Harrogate & District, Scarborough & District (East Yorkshire Motor Services), Yorkshire Coastliner, First and the local Dales & District.

There are no major airports in the county itself but nearby airports include Durham Tees Valley, Newcastle, Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield and Leeds Bradford.
