Currently there is the 630 service, operated by First, which terminates at the top. Service 508 from Leeds to Halifax operated also by First, is half-hourly along Dick Lane at the bottom of Tyersal. Previously, service 66 (operated by First and then Centrebus) provided buses to Leeds and back (there were four services daily), although 2010 saw this service withdrawn, and now service 508 is the only remaining bus to Leeds.
