SCOTTISH CITYLINK INTRODUCES NEW VEHICLES ON 919 ROUTE FROM FORT WILLIAM TO INVERNESS

 

Scottish Citylink has announced vehicle improvements for customers travelling from Fort William to Inverness.

The coach operator is to introduce a fleet of four new, state of the art coaches to the 919 route from November.

The British made Plaxton Elite vehicles, currently on order from the manufacturer in Scarborough, England will offer passengers the latest in luxury travel across the Highlands.

The new coaches - worth £1.2million – feature USB points, WiFi, toilet, air conditioning and reclining seats. The four vehicles – which have the cleanest Euro 6 engines available - will replace the current 10 year old vehicles across the route.

Peter Knight, Operations Director for Scottish Citylink said: “We’re delighted to be upgrading our fleet of coaches across the Highlands. Our new state of the art vehicles will provide passengers with a great transport option, while also ensuring that we are operating a fleet that is environmentally sustainable and safe.

“The new high-spec vehicles will offer the best possible service and value for money for our passengers, who can sit back and relax during their journey. 

“We continuously strive to update and upgrade our fleet so that customers can benefit from the very best, spacious and modern vehicles available and it will be great to see these new coaches travelling between Fort William and Inverness.”

The announcement of the new vehicles follows the introduction of a revised timetable in April that offers improved connections for commuters across Inverness.

A change to the 919 timetable (Fort William to Inverness) means that five return journeys a day and a new direct link to both the hospital and the university campus in Inverness from Fort William and the Great Glen are now available through two new journeys a day.

From Monday- Friday, the new journeys arrive at the Inverness Campus at 0840 and 1330, returning from the Campus at 1340 and 1710, calling at Raigmore Hospital in both directions.

Additional summer Sunday services have also been added to the timetable between May and October, with a total of four services instead of two.

For regular travellers, a new Flexi10 ticket for use within a 28 day period is available for £27.50 for journeys between Urquhart Castle, Drumnadrochit, Lochend, Dochgarroch and Inverness. This ticket is available from drivers on the coaches or online at www.citylink.co.uk.

Scottish Citylink is a joint venture between Perth-based transport group Stagecoach and international transport operator ComfortDelGro. Tickets can be bought online from www.citylink.co.uk or by calling the contact centre on 0871 266 3333
