Previous bus station[edit]

Keighley's previous bus station was constructed in the 1930s and the bus shelters were added in the 1970s. It was closed in 2001 to make way for the current bus station which opened in 2002. It was served originally by West Yorkshire Automobile before 1987 and deregulation. After deregulation, it was served by Keighley and District and First Calderline. Between 2001 and 2002 buses waited in the surrounding streets whilst the current bus station was being constructed. In 1995 many unnecessary services were removed; these include through services from Bradford to Haworth.
