Public Transport

Travelling by bus can be quicker than commuting by car through peak hour traffic congestion and you don’t have to find somewhere to park once you get there.

Train travel offers a realistic alternative to the car for longer distance journeys, whether commuting or travelling for business.

A number of bus services run within just a short walk of Calder Park, on Denby Dale Road. Furthermore, service 107 (formerly the 443a) runs through Calder Park in the morning and evening peak periods. There are two train stations in Wakefield city centre – Westgate and Kirkgate; you can get to either in around 55 minutes on foot, 20 minutes by bike or you can catch the bus, which takes around 15-20 minutes.

We’ve provided lots of useful information below, including details of timetables, ticketing options and how you can save money on your commute by bus or train.

Tickets & Discounts

There are lots of ways to save money on your journey by public transport. If you travel every day, an annual ticket is likely to offer the cheapest option, however, the upfront costs can be expensive.

Arriva Yorkshire now offers the option to pay for your annual ticket in monthly instalments if your employer signs up to their Employer Travel Club; meaning you get the cost savings associated with an annual ticket without the big outlay.

Similarly, you can purchase an annual rail ticket monthly through Northern’s corporate scheme, when your employer signs up.

If you use a combination of bus and rail, or a mix of bus operators, then an MCard may be your best bet. If your employer registers with the West Yorkshire Travel Plan Network, you can save 15% on an annual ticket too, and pay it back in monthly instalments direct from salary.
