Coxwold lies on four different bus routes.
The principal service, 31X, runs from Helmsley, eight miles north-east of the Village, through Coxwold to Easingwold (six miles south) then on to York.  The service is currently operated by Reliance Motor Services.  There are three services each day Monday to Friday and four on Saturday (Saturday service runs to/from Helmsley, not Kirkbymoorside).  Additional services run between Easingwold and York.  There is no Sunday service.  The journey time from Coxwold to York is about 40 minutes and to Helmsley is just half an hour.  Here are summary timetables: more detailed versions can be found on Reliance Motor Services' website where you can also download  .pdfs of all routes' timetables and details of conditions and concessions.

The third and fourth routes are the the summertime Moorsbus M5 (Sundays and Public Holidays) and M31 Saturdays, Sundays and PHs) service which serves Coxwold during June, July, August and September.  The M5 bus stops outside the Fauconberg Arms, bringing visitors from Northallerton and Thirsk, and continues to Byland Abbey, Ampleforth and Helmsley.  From Helmsley there are connecting services to a variety of destinations on the  Moors including Sutton Bank, Pickering, Hutton-le-Hole, and the North York Moors National Park Centre at Danby.  The M31 stops at Coxwold Garage (on Byland Road), on its route from York to the Sutton Bank Visitor Centre.  Both services interchange with other Moorsbuses, providing a network of routes through the North Yorks Moors National Park.
