Stagecoach festive timetables online to help plan Christmas and New Year travel

04 Dec 2020

Stagecoach West Scotland’s festive timetables are now available keeping local passengers and key workers connected this Christmas and New Year.

Passengers making essential journeys over the festive period should review these timetables before travelling as Stagecoach operates adapted bus services over the festive period.  

To allow those travelling for work, education or appointments to do so safely Stagecoach asks all passengers to avoid travelling during peak hours wherever possible.

Fiona Doherty, Managing Director of Stagecoach West Scotland, said: “Stagecoach is proud to be providing lifeline services across the west of Scotland during these challenging times and we will continue to do so over the festive period.

“Our timetables have been adapted between Christmas Eve and the first few days of January so all passengers should please check for any changes to the services they use.

“It’s also important to check the latest Covid-19 travel restrictions in your area before setting out on your journey and, unless you are exempt, please always remember to wear a face covering when travelling for the duration of your journey.”

You can find the festive timetables here and you can plan your journey via the Stagecoach Bus App here

All services will follow current timetables until 24th December when services will finish early across the Stagecoach network.

Stagecoach is operating a special timetable on Boxing Day and 2nd January.

Services will follow the current Sunday timetable on Sunday 27th December and between 28th December-31st December all services will follow the current Saturday timetable with services finishing early on 31st December for Hogmanay.

No services will operate on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day.
