You travel to Hebden Bridge on the Caldervale Line by Northern Rail. Regular services run from Leeds/York to Manchester Victoria/Blackpool North and vice versa.
I chose to travel by train instead of bus because of the bus connections that took me up in the Pennine Moorlands and also to save considerable amount of time. It took me approximately 40 minutes to reach Hebden Bridge from Leeds.
It cost me 6.10 gbp (September 2012) for an off peak day return and I could get on any train. It does cost more if you travel during rush hour (Mondays to Fridays) and also if you travel out and return different days.

Hebden Bridge is blessed with an excellent public transport infrastructure with regular buses around the town's district including the Pennine villages up in the hills such as Heptonstall and the Old Town. Even for the 'off beaten tracks', where one considers no one can get to without a car, there are seasonal bus services such as the 906 bus up to Widdop Reservoir and Hardcastle Craggs.

I caught the 500 bus from Keighley Bus Station to the outskirts of Hebden Bridge where the road to Hardcastle Craggs is. I had a twenty minutes connection at Keighley bus station from arriving by another bus from Leeds. The bus runs every hour (usually five minutes past the hour) and please check their website for further information on their bus schedules and fares.
The bus is always busy and packed by local residents and tourists alike. From a tourist perspective, the scenic route over the Pennine Moorlands from Haworth to Hebden Bridge is the highlight. Advice is it's best to go in line early at the stand so you can to ensure yourself a seat.

As we didn't get much time on Saturday in lovely Hebden Bridge, Hans and I thought it would be fun to take the train and spend Thursday afternoon there. So we went to the NORTHERN RAIL Station, which is only a five minute walk from the Wool Merchant Hotel and bought two tickets return for £2.00 each. You have to go the direction of Blackpool and it was only two stops from Halifax, so we were there in no time. From the Hebden Bridge Railway Station it's only a short ten minute walk to the town center.
