How crowded are they usually?
I'm off to York next week and am intending to do a couple of walks in, and near, the North Yorkshire Moors. I was going to do one maybe next Wednesday which would involve travelling to Pickering and then catching the NYMR service to Levisham. I might do this on the Saturday though depending on the weather.
The other walk involves travelling all the way to Whitby, maybe on the following Monday.
I travelled from York to Whitby one Thursday morning last year and the bus was absolutely heaving (with OAPs), so much so that not everyone who wanted to could get on at later stops!
Is it always like that?
