Regular bus services operate to Fraserburgh and Aberdeen, and an on-demand Dial-a-bus service is also available.
New Leeds is adjacent to the A952 road, which links with the A90 road north to Fraserburgh and south to Aberdeen and beyond.
A more modern landmark is the pair of wind turbines erected in 2008 at Redbog, 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) north of the village. A further turbine at nearby West Cockmuir is planned.
New Leeds was founded in the late 18th century by Alexander Fraser 8th of Strichen (fl. 1764), whose ambition was that the village would grow to rival Leeds in Yorkshire as a place of wool manufacture. Such ambitions were not to be realised, and by 1912 the village was suffering declining population, with many dwellings abandoned.
