Keighley & District is a bus company based in Keighley in West 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 bus operators. Its key marketed service is The Shuttle 662, which runs between Keighley and Bradford, and uses dedicated buses with leather seats.

Many of its services are partly paid for by Metro especially on Sundays and in the evenings. The Sunday extension of service 66A from Skipton to Grassington is paid for by North Yorkshire County Council.

Services and operations

The company operates bus services from Keighley bus station around town and interurban routes to Leeds, Bradford, Ilkley, Hebden Bridge and Skipton as well as various school services. In a similar fashion with other Blazefield Group/Transdev group companies, K&D's regular bus routes that it operates are separately marketed. High quality routes such as Shuttle 662 and The Zone, use differently liveried buses to the traditional fleet colour scheme. Most other buses within the fleet retain the traditional light blue and white appearance.

These are the current services provided by Keighley & District:
