I think the first low floor route in Keighley was the 717 to Oakworth. That is what the R-reg Volvo B10's were bought for in 1997-1998. Not sure about Bradford, but their B10's were bought around the same time and i remember them on the 607 to Thornton.

In Huddersfield, apart from the odd low floor Yorkshire Buses service, I remember some ex-York low floor N or P-reg Wright buses arriving in 1999. The were painted in various shades of green and cream (like the old Kingfisher colours) with a big orangey-red arrow pointing to the fact that it was low floor. I seem to remember them having a logo of First 2000, carrying you into the next millenium.
The first low floor buses operated in Leeds, were a batch of P reg dart SLF's, that were delivered in orange and were originally going to be used on a competition basis in Newcastle called "Tyne-Line". This never came off and the buses stayed in Leeds for a short time before moving on within the group. (Mostly to Glasgow)

I always understood that the service number 5 (New Farnley - Armley - Leeds) was first low floor operated route in Leeds with the Scania L94UB wrights which for a while were based at Bramley Garage. They use to also get a run out on the on 16/17's as well at off peak times.
I remember when they were first delivered to Bramley garage in an All red color sceam as they were meant to be heading somewhere else within the group but ended up staying here before eventually heading to Cherryrow.
If also remember correctly Didn't they even name the Bramley based 8100's after a Kids school competition???
