Bridge, Huddersfield and Todmorden railway stations.
The 901 timetable can also be downloaded from the Metro website here.
If you are not sure which stop to get off, ask the bus driver who will know
where your walks start.
Always wear good walking boots or shoes and take some waterproof clothes with you: the weather can change quite quickly on the tops. Make sure you have a copy of the 901 bus timetable (and any others you might need for returning to your destination).
Check the opening times of cafés and pubs on the route. Just in case, always take a drink and a snack. If you have the South Pennine Ordnance Survey map, bring it with you, even on the routes with maps.
Be aware that mobile phone signals come and go in this area.
