Fancy a day trip?


At our July meeting, we had a lively discussion about transport provision in the Harrogate District. As well as finding out about a whole host of transport providers including Happy Wanderers, local taxis, HARCVS etc, we heard about ‘Vamooz’ – a new service provided by the Harrogate Bus Company. So, here are a few suggestions of day trips which might interest you.

Fancy a day out?

Vamooz travel comp.Fancy a day out at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park? Or how about a trip to Backpool and the St Anne’s Kite Festival? These are just two of the the trips organised by Transdev bus company as part of their Vamooz project. To book tickets, download the VAMOOZ app onto an iPhone or Android phone then select the trip you want to purchase.  One person can book for others if, for example, there are people who can’t access the app but a central organiser could do so and buy their tickets for them.
