Cumbernauld Investment

19 Feb 2016


  • New fleet of 18 greener double deck vehicles for Cumbernauld-Glasgow route from May 2016
  • Planned relocation of existing operations from Blochairn depot

Stagecoach West Scotland today (Friday 19th February 2016) announced a major investment in bus services as part of the relocation of operations to a new base in Cumbernauld.

The company is introducing a £4m fleet of 18 new state-of-the-art double decker buses in May to replace the existing vehicles used on Cumbernauld to Glasgow express services. 

It will mean passengers using the X25, X25A and X28 services will benefit from more comfortable journeys on buses with some of the greenest engines in Europe.

The investment is part of the planned move of the company's local bus operations from its existing Blochairn depot in Glasgow from Saturday 30  April. 

Operations and staff based at the Glasgow depot will move to the new Stagecoach bus depot at Glencryan Road, Cumbernauld which the company acquired in May last year.

All of the 218 staff at the existing Glasgow depot have been offered positions at the new depot and it is hoped the majority will relocate to the Cumbernauld facility or to another depot within Stagecoach West Scotland under plans being discussed with staff and trade union representatives.

As a result of the changes, Stagecoach's G1 and G2 services, which operate within Glasgow, will be withdrawn from 23 April. 

Tom Bridge, Managing Director Stagecoach West Scotland said: "This new investment and the planned move to the new Cumbernauld facility will give us a good platform to deliver higher quality bus services in the area. It will involve some changes, but I'm confident it will mean we can build a sustainable bus network for the future and ensure stability for the majority of our employees over the long-term."
