Stagecoach East Scotland announced their 2017/18 festive timetable this week, outlining any service revisions taking place over Christmas and New Year.
The bus company, who make revisions to their timetable around the festive period every year, have stated that no services will run on Christmas Day and New Year's Day, with special timetables running on Boxing Day and Tuesday 2 January 2018.
On Christmas Eve, some late evening Stagecoach services may end earlier than usual or be withdrawn, with this also being the case on the night of Hogmanay.
With all services across Fife, Dundee & Angus and Perthshire affected in some way over the period, the bus company are urging passengers to check their journey before they travel. A list of affected journeys and special festive timetables is now available to view and download on the Stagecoach website, with festive guides also available in local travel shops and on buses towards the end of this week.
Douglas Robertson, Commercial Director, Stagecoach East Scotland said: “Our website journey planner has been updated to show the special festive timetables and affected journeys, providing live bus times and up to date information. We would encourage anyone planning to travel between Sunday 24 December and Tuesday 2 January 2018 to check our website or festive timetable guide before heading out."
The launch of the festive timetables comes just weeks after Stagecoach East Scotland announced their new cheaper day return tickets, available on select services across the network, just in time for the festive period.
Customers can purchase the new day return tickets, varying from £5 to £8, on journeys from Perth to Edinburgh, Rosyth/Dunfermline to Edinburgh, Kinross to Perth, Dundee to Arbroath and many more for up to 40% off the equivalent dayrider ticket price for the journey. New day returns tickets can be bought from the driver.
