Latest Service Updates

Local Bus Network

In-line with the Scottish Government's lockdown exit strategy (and ahead of the start of the new academic year) we will introduce a new set of timetables from Sunday 9 August

Frequencies will increase on busier core routes to safely support physical distancing. School buses will also resume for Harris Academy, St Pauls Academy and Madras College. We are keeping a close eye on demand, and things are subject to change as social & economic activity gradually resume. We would recommend that non-essential journeys be done outside of school times (i.e. avoid travelling between 0800 - 0900 and 1430 - 1630) to reduce the possibility of overcrowding.

Current timetables are available on this website (just type your service number into the search bar), and live journey information is available on Google Maps or the Traveline Scotland app.

Stay safe. Stay apart.

Keeping our buses clean and safe

In-line with Scottish Government guidance, we've set out some things you can do to look after yourself and others while travelling. This includes the mandatory wearing of face coverings on public transport (effective from Monday 22 June). There are some limited exemptions to this, which are explained on the Transport Scotland website.

We've also outlined the steps we are taking to keep our buses clean and safe.
