Otley bus station serves the town of Otley, West Yorkshire, England.

The bus station consists of five stands in total. Four of them next to the Orchard Gate Centre with one on Crossgate. Unlike most of the bus stations in West Yorkshire, Otley Bus Station is privately owned[1] by the Miller Group who own the Orchard Gate centre. As Otley currently does not have a railway station there is a regular connection from the town to Menston railway station 2 miles (3 km) away.[2] This links the town with the Wharfedale Line to Leeds and Bradford.
