DISCOUNTED TRAVEL FOR CULBOKIE COMMUTERS

19 Jul 2017

Local bus operator Stagecoach have launched a discounted day ticket for Culbokie residents.

Residents travelling from Culbokie to Inverness will pay less on Stagecoach bus services when they show their D&E ticket. The initiative has been developed by the local Stagecoach team to assist customers with the cost of travelling from Culbokie to Inverness.  

Customers travelling from Culbokie to Inverness can board the D&E service to connect from with service 25U at Duncanston crossroads. A discount of £1.45 will then be applied to the cost of a Stagecoach return or day ticket from Duncanston to Inverness. The discount offer has been introduced to reduce the cost for those commuting to Inverness and is only valid for redemption on the Stagecoach service 25U at 0801 from Duncanston crossroads to Inverness. Customers can use any return journey that will provide the onward connection to return to Culbokie. 

Mark Whitelocks, Managing Director for Stagecoach North Scotland said: "We have been thinking about how we can assist commuters from Culbokie following our service change in April and we are pleased to be able to offer this discount to Culbokie reducing the cost of commuting to Inverness by bus. We are continuing to encourage the Highland Council and other operators to discuss the need for multi-operator bus ticketing in the Highlands area as we believe it will make bus travel even more appealing to local communities being able to use just one ticket. In 2014 we successfully launched multi-operator ticketing in Aberdeenshire in partnership with the local authorities and other bus operators and it would be fantastic to be able to bring this to the Highlands too." 

Stagecoach travel between Duncanston and Inverness is £6.35. Commuters from Culbokie will pay just £4.90 for a day ticket when showing their D&E connection bus ticket. Longer term tickets are available with travel from just £3.20 per day (based on the 4 week megarider ticket).
