Transdev Harrogate & District is a local bus company based in Harrogate in North Yorkshire, England. It is part of the Blazefield Group which is itself owned by the international transport company Transdev.

Like other Blazefield Group companies it aims to maintain a strong local identity with brand & service quality in comparison to other local bus operators. Its key marketed route is The 36, a high frequency service between Ripon, Harrogate and Leeds. This was the UKs first bus route to use new vehicles with leather seats, with the aim of gaining new, non-bus using customers. Another significant route is the Bus2Jet route 767 service between Harrogate and Leeds Bradford Airport.
