Bus timetable revisions in Inverness and Caithness

30 May 2016

  • School journeys re-timed
  • Pennyland Drive re-introduced in Thurso

From Monday 6th June some bus passengers in Inverness and Caithness will see changes to their bus services. The majority of service revisions are being introduced due to changes in school closing hours.

Amendments to services are made to accommodate some of the schools across the Highlands having an early closing day on Fridays.

From the same date, Pennyland Drive, Thurso will be re-introduced to the service 79 route. Pennyland Drive was removed from the route in April 2016 due to parked cars making the route inaccessible to buses. Following customer feedback, an alternative route omitting Heathfield Road has been identified and will begin operation at the beginning of June. 

Steve Walker, Managing Director for Stagecoach North Scotland said: "The company is always keen to hear feedback from our customers. Our overall aim is to provide a better, more efficient and more reliable package of services to our customers. We have assessed the route in Thurso and are confident we now have an adequate solution to the access problems we have faced on the service 79 route."
