Taxi from Leeds Train Station to Halifax?

So I broke my arm and won't be confident of driving when we go on vacation to the UK. The husband is freaking out about the left side of the road thing, so to reduce stress, I'm thinking of a taxi. The only place we've rented a car is in Leeds (to get to our B&B in Halifax and then to Haworth and back.) Any info as to cost? Car rental was $130 for 2 days, then there's fuel... so anything that is not too exorbitantly more would work out...

In case you're not aware that there's a direct Leeds-Halifax rail service, there is one. Of course, that you're starting from Leeds station would suggest that you've already considered rail, so this probably isn't very useful advice. Ah well.

(It's sort of possible to get to Haworth and back too, circuitously via Bradford and the KWVR heritage railway, but probably not worthwhile unless you wanted to go on the latter anyway).

Wert Yorkshire is reasonably well supplied with pubic transport, see

There are regular trains from Leeds to Halifax as stated above.

To get to Haworth take the train to Hebden Bridge then the 500 bus across the moors - a Family DayRover would be a suitable ticket even if you don't have children with you

Back from our trip! We ended up taking a train to Halifax, where our B&B host picked us up. We took cabs around the area--in most cases paying around the equivalent of $25 US. This ended up being cheaper than renting a car.
