Along with Bradford it was the first trolley bus system to be adopted in the United Kingdom. There were just three routes; Leeds - Lower Wortley - Farnley - Moor Top, Guiseley - Otley and Guiseley - Burley-in-Wharfedale. The four trolley buses were manufactured by the Railless Electric Traction Company.
