Latest Service Updates

Local Bus Network

We are keeping our bus service levels under constant review - particularly the busiest times and routes. We plan to make some service changes at a time in line with the Scottish Government's guidance for transitioning out of lockdown.

With 'Phase 1' now in effect, the Government's strategy does not provide for any increase in local bus services - yet. Instead, this will be a feature of 'Phase 2', which is expected in the coming weeks.

Until then, we will continue to operate our reduced timetables and follow Government guidance on public transport arrangements.

Check out current timetables for active services via the links below. Services not listed here are not presently running.
