Coxwold Village - Pastures and Moors

Coxwold lies on three different bus routes.
The principal route, 31X, runs from Helmsley, eight miles north-east of the Village, through Coxwold to Easingwold (six miles south) then on to York.  The route is currently operated by Reliance Motor Services.  From Kirkbymoorside and Helmsley to York the service was drastically reduced in June 2020 so there are now only two services each day Monday to Friday.  Additional services run between Easingwold and York.  There is no Saturday or Sunday service.  The journey time from Coxwold to York is about 40 minutes and to Helmsley is just half an hour.  Here is a summary timetable: a more detailed version can be found on Reliance Motor Services' website where you can also download a .pdf of the whole timetable.
