A popular bus service between Kirkheaton and Huddersfield town centre needs a catchy name.

Team Pennine’s Kirkheaton Quick bus is turning heads in its two-tone pink livery but now it needs a name to match its looks.

Since the bus route was launched in September passenger numbers have exceeded expectations and now a month’s free travel on buses right across the North of England is up for grabs for someone who can come up with a name.

Team Pennine CEO Alex Hornby said: “We’re looking for a memorable and eye-catching name for our Kirkheaton Quick bus, to help it stand out even more on the road in Huddersfield.

“The Kirkheaton Quick route was first put forward in our consultation with local residents, who told us they weren’t happy with existing bus routes run by others which didn’t serve their area properly.

“We saw clear evidence of demand for a direct link between the Kirkheaton area and Huddersfield town centre, using a straightforward route into town which opens up access to shops and services on Wakefield Road

“In its first month the route has proved an amazing success, with rising customer numbers ahead of expectations.

“Now we want to build on our positive relationship with the people of Kirkheaton by giving our bus an appropriate name, to reflect the pride of this West Yorkshire community.”
