SCOTTISH CITYLINK ANNOUNCES EXCITING SERVICE IMPROVEMENTS IN THE HIGHLANDS

 

Scottish Citylink has announced service improvements for customers in the Highlands.
The coach operator is to introduce a revised timetable from 24 April that will provide improved connections for commuters across Inverness.

The 919 timetable (Fort William to Inverness) will now provide five return journeys a day. A new direct link to both the hospital and the university from Fort William and the Great Glen will be provided by two new journeys a day allowing return commuting and student travel to Inverness from all points on the route.

On Monday- Friday, the new journeys will 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 will also be 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 will be 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 Managing Director, Robert Andrew said: “We are excited to be able to offer these additional services for the Highlands. As always we’ve listened to our passengers who have asked for a direct service from Fort William and the Great Glen to the hospital and university campus in Inverness and have added this to our timetable. We hope this will make a real difference to our customers who want to make this popular journey.

“We also know that the region receives a lot of tourists over the summer months, which is why we’ve added additional summer Sunday services. We hope that these changes will help to provide a vital service for our local communities, encouraging visitors to the region and helping economies to grow.”

Highlands and Islands MSP John Finnie, Transport Spokesperson for the Scottish Green Party, said:

“I am delighted that this improved service will ensure people can travel from Lochaber to the University of the Highlands and Islands in time for classes to begin. This is an excellent example of a service reflecting community needs.

“Reliable services, focussed on the needs of our communities are important in encouraging greater use of public transport, helping to tackle congestion and air pollution.”

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.
