The buses interlink reasonably well and fares are reasonably low. There are a number of buses with disabled access.

Northallerton is on the main London to Edinburgh mainline and East Coast trains stop here. Also served by Transpennine Express trains on the hourly Manchester to Middlesborough route or the equally frequent Liverpool to Newcastle route but not all the trains on the latter route always stop here.
Also served several times a day by Grand Central trains on the Sunderland to Newcastle service (see separate tip).
Cheapest fare from / to London
Grand Central Railway is a relatively new company operating London to Sunderland trains and these stop at Northallerton in each direction.
They are what is classed an open fare operator and can set their own fares - consequently they are significantly cheaper than East Coast who operate London trains via Northallerton.
An advance single to London can cost as little as £12.
There are only four trains each day in each direction but as such great savings can be made it is worth booking with Grand Central.

Northallerton Railway Station
I travelled by train from Leeds to Northallerton when I visited. It cost me 17 gbp (October 2011) for an advance day return but this would be considerably more if I booked on the day. First Transpennine Express offers direct trains from Leeds to Northallerton and takes approximately 1 hour to 1.5 hours. East Coast Trains also offers direct trains to Northallerton from London and Newcastle.
