The Wharfedale Packhorse is operated and administered by the Upper Wharfedale Community Interest Company with support from DalesBus, Dales & Bowland Community Interest Company and funded with the help of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Sustainable Development Fund, Dark Horse Brewery, Wharfedale Brewery, pubs throughout Wharfedale and Littondale and the Wharfedale Beer Festival.  Unlike most community minibuses, we receive absolutely no funding from Central Government nor North Yorkshire County Council.  We are entirely dependent on private finance and the goodwill of our users.  Collection tins are available on the bus - please give generously.
