Bus users in Todmorden could soon see a more frequent service to and from Halifax as part of a review being carried out by Metro and First.

First is proposing to amend the 591 and 593 services at the end of January 2014 so that they run every ten minutes between Halifax and Todmorden via Hebden Bridge.

But the timetable changes would result in the direct service to Halifax from Heptonstall and Old Town being cut.

Metro and First will be holding a drop-in public consultation at Halifax Bus Station on Thursday, August 15, between 2.30pm and 6.30pm.

The consultation is open until Monday, September 9. Questions and comments can be emailed to
