Stagecoach announces reduced bus services in West Scotland

04 Feb 2021

Following a reduced demand for bus services in line with ongoing travel restrictions in place across Scotland, due to COVID-19, Stagecoach West Scotland is adapting several bus timetables for services across Ayrshire, Glasgow and the Borders.

From Monday (8th February), service changes include:

  • The X77 between Ayr and Glasgow will now operate every hour during off-peak hours, with adjustments to some early peak and evening services.
  • The S3/S9 between Ayr, Belmont Academy and Ayr Academy Campus, will no longer operate. Alternative services will continue to be available.
  • 585 Ayr – Largs route will operate every half hour - ticket acceptance with McGills from Largs to Greenock remains in place.

Fiona Doherty, Managing Director of Stagecoach West Scotland, said: “During these challenging times, we know how important continued availability of transport is to local communities and key workers across the west of Scotland.”

“With demand for bus services reduced due to current travel restrictions across Scotland, we have adapted our timetables for some routes. By introducing these timetable changes, we have been able to preserve essential routes for key sector employees such as healthcare staff, to get to continue to get to work safely.

“We want local passengers to know that we will continue to provide lifeline transport options for key workers to get across the west of Scotland.”
