Improved bus service for West Fife shoppers

27 Apr 2015

Stagecoach East Scotland have announced that the popular weekend shoppers service 51 will be revised in response to growing passenger numbers.

The route, which operates between Dunfermline and Livingston via Ferrytoll Park and Ride, Forth Road Bridge and Kirkliston will operate hourly from Saturday 9th May. 

The enhancement sees the weekend service improved from running every two hours to hourly in response to higher passenger use.

Andrew Jarvis, Managing Director, Stagecoach East Scotland said: "The revision ensures that passengers will have hourly access to Livingston town centre and will help us to meet the needs of the weekend shoppers."

Although normally only running on Saturdays and Sundays, customers will get the first opportunity to try the improved hourly service on Monday 4th May, as all Stagecoach services operating across Fife and Edinburgh run to a Saturday timetable on the May Day holiday.

The new timetable for service 51 is available to download from the service update section of the Stagecoach website at www.stagecoachbus.com.
