Changes to Highlands bus services from Monday 25 January

Changes to bus services from Monday 25 January


  • Update from Stagecoach Highlands on changes to timetables
  • Safety and well-being of customers and bus employees remains top priority


Stagecoach Highlands has provided an update on changes being made to bus timetables in response to government advice on avoiding non-essential travel.

Following an analysis of the demand for bus services in the area since the latest lockdown began on Boxing Day, the frequency of some services will be reduced while continuing to cater for essential shopping trips and key workers to commute by bus. Revised timetables will be in place from Monday 25th January 2021 and are now available   here.

David Beaton, Managing Director for Stagecoach Highlands said: “Our services have kept communities connected throughout the pandemic. We have made the difficult decision to reduce some of our services in line with the stay-at-home advice from the Scottish Government.

“I’m extremely proud of the way our team across the Highlands has worked together to ensure that we can continue to deliver our services in the most challenging of times.  They are key workers too and I would like to thank them for their continued support and resilience.”

In addition to enhanced cleaning regimes, Stagecoach has taken extensive action to protect the safety of its customers and staff with a number of additional measures in place. Contactless payments are being encouraged wherever possible and social distancing guidelines are being displayed on buses.

Customers can stay up to date with all the latest news from Stagecoach on Twitter   @StagecoachHLand. Full details of the new timetables are available to   download now.
