Confirmed timetable changes for 15 August 2016 - Strathtay area

Stagecoach Strathtay

 

Thanks for getting involved in our consultation process which took place across Fife and Dundee in June, to discuss proposed timetable changes for August.  

We really appreciate the feedback we've received from the web forms received through this site, in person at the drop in sessions, via email or from the feedback forms completed and returned to us.  

We've now gone through the feedback received, made revisions to our original plans and created new timetables, valid from Monday 15 August 2016

Full details of our confirmed changes are detailed below, with links to the new timetable files.   Printed leaflets are currently in production and will be available in travel shops from around 3 August onwards. 

Timetables are available by clicking on the service headings, or you can  plan your journey online now.

16/A/B/X Dundee – Invergowrie – Errol - Perth

Daytime journeys, Monday to Saturday, will terminate at Perth Royal Infirmary rather than bus station and then operate via a consistent routing through St Madoes, Errol, Grange, Inchture, Longforgan, Invergowrie, Technology Park, Ninewell Hospital, Perth Road to Dundee city centre. Perth & Kinross Council supported evening journeys remain similar to present as does the Sunday timetable including diversions via Kingoodie and Castle Huntly.

The basic frequency will be hourly with service X53 combining to offer approximately half hourly headway between Invergowrie and Dundee.

New services 51A, 51B will partly replace journeys on service 16A along the A90 corridor east of St Madoes.



31/33 Arbroath (College) – Brechin - Laurencekirk

Due to changes in the requirement for college transport at Dundee & Angus College in Arbroath, a revised service 33 will operate while service 31 is withdrawn.



39/39A Gauldry – Wormit – Newport – Dundee – Arbroath


Service 39 is extended to also serve Newport, Wormit and Gauldry, replacing services 77 and 77B. The daytime frequency will remain as now, half hourly and some additional early morning and evening journeys will be introduced between Arbroath and Dundee.

Some journeys will also continue to serve Balmerino as per the current service 77.

Dundee to Newport, Wormit and Gauldry will see an improved hourly evening service.



42/B St Andrews – Leuchars – Tayport – Dundee

We are proposing to improve the frequency of the 41 service between Dundee and Tayport. This would see the current 20 minute frequency improved to every 15 minutes. One journey per hour would continue to extend beyond Tayport to Leuchars and St Andrews with peak time journeys via Strathkinnes as now (service 42B).


The hourly journey currently between Dundee, Tayport and Cupar would be replaced by an improved express service X53/X54 (see below). Although through journeys would no longer be possible between Tayport and Cupar then number of such journeys made is small and it would still be possible to connect between services at either St Michaels or at Guardbridge.

Evening and Sunday service provision will be improved with an hourly service all evening with later journeys at 2255 and 0010 and an hourly Sunday service between the 42B and 53.



X42 Kirkcaldy – Glenrothes – Ladybank – Cupar – Dundee – Ninewells Hospital - link to new route X53 timetable from 15 August 2016

This service will be replaced by new service X53. See below.



X53 (new) Kirkcaldy – Glenrothes – Ladybank – Cupar – Dundee

This new service will replace service X42 although operating revised routing in Dundee.  Additional stopping points are introduced at Cupar for the oats factory and at Drumoig.

In Dundee the service will now operate via the University, Perth Road, Ninewells Hospital, Invergowrie and Kingoodie.

A much improved hourly evening service will also be introduced as well as a two hourly Sunday service between Dundee and Kirkcaldy. This will operate via Tayport as a service 53 and will stop at all stops on route.

Several commuter trips will also serve Letham Road End to maintain a link at peak times to Dundee.

Between services X53 and X54 Cupar will now have a half hourly express direct to Dundee city centre.



X54 Dundee – Glenrothes – Halbeath – Ferrytoll - Edinburgh

Between Glenrothes and Dundee bus stations this service will follow a new route via Cupar and Dundee city centre.

This introduces new stops at Kettlebridge, Balmalcolm, Pitessie, Cupar Knox Gardens, Cupar railway station, Cupar East Road, Dairsie, Balmullo, St Michaels, Drumoig and Forgan Roundabout. For Kettlebridge, Balmalcolm and Pitessie this would give them a direct bus to Dundee and a doubling of frequency to Edinburgh, which Cupar and Dairsie would also benefit from.

Between services X53 and X54 Cupar will now have a half hourly express direct to Dundee city centre.

The existing X54 route from New Inn Roundabout via A92 to the Tay Bridge will no longer be served. Freuchie and Ladybank are served by the new X53 in addition to other local services. Letham will continue to be served at peak times by the X53 and off peak by service 64/64A which would offer connections to Dundee from Cupar. The small villages along the A92 would not be served by any services. Newport will be served by revised Stagecoach Strathtay services 39/39A (see below).

Overall journey time remains similar to the current A92 and Newport route.

Overall service provision remains similar to now with frequency and first or last departures much as now.



59 Blairgowrie – Coupar Angus – Muirhead - Dundee

The current Monday to Friday journeys at 0921 and 1542 from Piperdam to Dundee, and the 0850 and 1510 from Dundee to Piperdam are withdrawn, however an additional 0855 departure from Blairgowrie will partly replace the 0927 from Muirhead to Dundee.



60 Blairgowrie - Butterstone - Dunkeld

Additional schoolday only return journey from Dunkeld to Blairgowrie is added.



71 Blairgowrie - Bridge of Cally - Spittal of Glenshee - Tarvie

75 Dundee - Broughty Ferry - Ethiebeaton Park

A revised afternoon timetable will operate with an additional 1519 departure from Dundee to Ethiebeaton. Departures at 1649 and 1739 are withdrawn. Tayway services 73/73A/73B provide alternative journeys for most sections of route.

College day journeys between the city centre and Gardyne Road campus are introduced.



77/77B Gauldry – Wormit – Newport – Dundee – Invergowrie

Services withdrawn and replaced by extended services 39, 39A between Dundee and Gauldry and new service X53 between Dundee and Kingoodie.
