Transportation in Leeds


Walking is the most rewarding way to explore the city centre. It only takes a few minutes to stroll from the Royal Armouries on the riverside to the Victoria Quarter in the shopping district, most of which is pedestrianised.


An extensive network of frequent modern buses covers the entire city. Fares are reasonable, and passes make them even less expensive. In addition, clearly marked 'FreeCityBus' single-deckers, running every few minutes, offer completely free travel around the city centre. The central bus station is in York Street.


Taxis are black and white and display an illuminated 'taxi' sign on the roof. They can be pre-booked, hailed on the street, or picked up at cab ranks throughout the city centre. Not expensive, they display a rate card, but make extra charges for luggage and night travel.

Rent your car

Leeds has several motorway links and a bypass across the north side. In the city centre, you will have to follow a one-way system, the City Centre Loop, which passes several tourist attractions and shopping centres. The multi-storey car park on Woodhouse Lane is one of the best parking options.

Transportation tips

One-day FirstDay passes, and one-week FirstWeek passes, giving unlimited travel, can be bought from bus drivers or at the bus station. Children aged five to 18 (in full-time education) travel for half the adult fare; to take advantage of this, over-11s need a Half-Fare Pass from the bus station.
