BUS passengers in Primrose Hill have regained a more frequent service after a concerted campaign by residents.
Operator K-Line has stepped in to fill a gap left by First which meant passengers had to wait for just an hourly bus.
A new K-Line 307 service will operate along Cross Lane, Primrose Hill, which used to be served by First's withdrawn 308 and moved 306 service.
First put only a new hourly 312 Huddersfield-Holmfirth service in their place.
The new K-Line 307 - a different route from First's old 307 - will operate from town via Newsome Road, Stile Common Road, Primrose Hill Road, Cross Lane, Lockwood Scar and Church Lane to Newsome, turning via Hart Street and Ruth Street and returning along its outbound route.
The new route is being operated in addition to K-Line's 319 service which runs up the whole of Newsome Road to Newsome, Berry Brow and Taylor Hill, returning via Edale Avenue and Newsome Road.
K-Line appealed for people to use its new 307 as it is being funded privately without a subsidy from Metro.
Mr John Whiteing , spokesman for K-Line, said: "It's a fact that we are doing it commercially with no help from Metro. We think there's a market opening here. We believe the public of that area are not well served.
"But we need people to use the service."
The service operates out of Huddersfield between 7.20am and 5.50pm, Monday to Saturday, every half-hour. The last journey continues to Honley.
The first morning journey to Huddersfield, calling at Newsome at 7am, starts at Honley.
