Bus workers show the grit to get Harrogate moving again

With heavy snowfall bringing roads across Harrogate and Knaresborough to a standstill, Harrogate Bus Company employees took it upon themselves to get things moving again. Drivers, engineers, cleaners and the directors of The Harrogate Bus Company have been out with the shovels and grit to get things moving – helping stranded motorists and buses alike. The company were forced to cancel multiple services due to the dangerous weather conditions, but took to the streets of Harrogate and Knaresborough to speed along the gritting process.

“Our team has really pulled together, to try and help around the town on a difficult day. The weather looks to have caught a lot of people by surprise, so we’ve been out gritting roads, getting stuck cars moving again, and doing what we can to help. “The generosity of others has been really welcome too – like the team in Sainbury’s in Knaresborough bringing hot drinks to our drivers waiting in the bus station. “We’re hoping to have buses running normally again very soon, thanks to the effort of our colleagues.”
