There are numerous bus services in the Ripon area, allowing many people in Ripon to rely on the local bus service to travel to work, school or in leisure time. Ripon does not have a train station, but the nearest ones are in Harrogate and Thirsk.

There are minibus bus links around the city itself and to surrounding villages and attractions. New for Summer 2006 is a Sunday and Bank Holiday Ripon Roweller bus service to Fountains Abbey and Newby Hall.
