FREE buses helped hundreds of Huddersfield people get around over Christmas.
Commercial services provided by local operators First, K-Line and Yorkshire Traction did not run on Christmas Day or Boxing Day.
But people were not left stranded - because community groups laid on free voluntary services.
The Green Party ran a circular bus service from Berry Brow to Newsome, into Huddersfield centre, out to Lindley and on to Salendine Nook and Mount.
The service ran three times on Christmas Eve, twice on Christmas Day and twice on Boxing Day.
It will run again tomorrow and on New Year's Day.
Tomorrow, commercial services will be reduced and no buses from First, K-Line or Yorkshire Traction will run on Thursday.
Clr Andrew Cooper, Green Party member, said: "The service has been well-used, particularly on Boxing Day.
"For the past 10 years we have paid for the service from our party funds and just asked for voluntary donations from passengers.
"This year, we might get some money from Kirklees Council to help," he added.
No application has yet been submitted for the cash.
However, Kirklees has given cash to other voluntary bus services in Huddersfield this year, to cover vehicle hire and fuel costs.
One of the voluntary services will be run by the Holmfirth Branch Line group, which will operate its usual Holmfirth- Shepley service over the new year holiday.
The Meltham and Netherton community volunteers also got cash to run free Christmas buses around Meltham and into Huddersfield town centre via Netherton.
They will run services again tomorrow, from 10.30 to 11.30pm and on New Year's Day from 10am to 5pm.
