Stagecoach East Scotland today announced that they are proposing service changes from Monday 29 July 2019.
The proposal includes changes to the Express City Connect network, as well as some local services.
Before confirming these revisions in late June, Stagecoach are consulting local Councils, along with customers and staff for feedback on the proposals.
The company has posted full details of the proposed changes on its website, with an online form and contact details for customers to return any info. Staff will also be present at each bus station/Park & Ride location next week to discuss with customers directly, taking them through the proposal and collating any feedback received.
Stagecoach East Scotland Managing Director Douglas Robertson said: “We have been reviewing our network of services across Fife, Perth & Kinross, Dundee & Angus and in order to ensure we provide the best possible service for our customers, we are currently planning a range of network revisions in late July.
“Feedback from our customers is vital when planning changes to local services. Customers are encouraged get in touch to ensure we’re able to plan the best network possible. The proposals include more frequent services to Edinburgh from Ferrytoll and Halbeath Park & Rides, including non-stop journeys and a new service for eastern Dunfermline, as well as ensuring faster and more frequent journeys between both Glenrothes and Kirkcaldy to Edinburgh. We’ve also proposed the addition of low floor journeys between Glenrothes and Dundee – something which has been previously requested by our customers. Enhanced services between Fife and Dundee are also included.”
Customers can view the full list of proposals, as well as leave feedback that will be considered in the consultation process, via an online form on stagecoachbus.com, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to CUSTOMER CONSULTATION, FREEPOST STAGECOACH.
All comments on the proposals must be provided before Friday 7 June 2019. Following this process Stagecoach will amend their planning as necessary and publish details of the confirmed changes in early July.
