Onward Travel

Hi folks,

Hope you can help...

What is the best way to get to Manchester from Leeds Bradford Airport?

I have often flown into JL Airport in Liverpool and there is a great direct bus service outside the door. Is there a similar one from Leeds Airport?

If not, is it easy get to City Centre and then into Manchester?

Thanks in advance :-)

Hi Mike, unfortunately there is no train link from LBA. I'd suggest getting the airport bus (number 757) which leaves the airport every 30 minutes during the day.

If you get off at city square you are just over the road from the train station where you can get the train to Manchester.

there is another option but NOT as good

once you get into leeds city centre

the bus stops at leeds bus station first

there are coach services that takes you into manchester which is a cheaper option

Not quite; they sell through tickets online but you still use the 757 bus to get Leeds Bus & Coach Station.

If you book this trip (LBA-Manchester) on the National Express coach website, the first part of the journey is on the airport bus service to the bus station at Leeds before you get the National Express coach from Leeds to Manchester. It tells you at time of booking thet it is provided by a third party coach provider, Centrebus, who run the airport bus service.
