The Yorkshire Dales are always easier to see with your own car, but failing that, it is perfectly possible to go by public transport. You just have to study timetables carefully and be prepared for the fact that some rare journeys can only be made Sundays in summer or Bank Holidays for instance (such as Hawes to Richmond via Swaledale). Leyburn to Hawes via Aysgarth is not that much of a problem if planned and Richmond to Keld, that is along most of Swaledale's villages, is also not hard. The best thing to do if you rely on public transport is to base yourself in a small town which is a bit of a bus junction, such as Ripon or Leyburn, Richmond or Skipton, and make daytrips. You can also buy a "Freedom ticket" for either yourself or the whole family and go for a set price with all buses for a day. A great way to explore for instance Swaledale.
The Yorkshire Coastliner is a great bus for going between Leeds/York and coastal towns like Whitby and Scarborough. Not only are they frequent enough, but the buses to Whitby also go across the North York Moors national park which is great if you want to visit pretty places like Goathlands and Thornton-le-Dale. You can catch the bus from York's railway station, Leeds bus station and Malton to name a few stops.
