GOVERNMENT CORONAVIRUS MEASURES: CHANGES TO SCOTTISH CITYLINK COACHES SERVICES


Temporary changes to coach services are being introduced by Scottish Citylink from Monday 23 March following new government advice around social contact and non-essential travel to help combat the coronavirus.

A reduced timetable will operate across the Scottish Citylink network until further notice. The timetables have been carefully created to ensure that critical routes are maintained wherever possible.

It follows extensive action by bus and coach operators to enhance cleaning regimes and protect the safety and well-being of customers and bus workers.

Separately, the bus and coach industry is also engaging with government to help ensure the long-term future of bus and coach services, which are critical to the economy and local communities, is protected.

Robert Andrew, Regional Director for Stagecoach said: “Along with other bus and coach operators and key sectors, we are working hard to support the national effort to tackle the current challenging situation.

"The safety of our customers and our employees is at the heart of everything we do. We also know that our coach services play a vital role in keeping the country running and ensuring key sector personnel get to work.

“Following the latest government advice, we have reviewed our timetables and made temporary changes which reflect the reduced level of travel. Our objective has been to focus resources on where we know they are needed most at this time.

“We are working hard to best maintain essential services, safeguard jobs and ensure the long-term sustainability of a sector which is central to our economy and communities.

“We will continue to monitor the position, liaise closely with government and other authorities, and respond as appropriate to what is a dynamic situation.”

Customers are advised to check the details before embarking on a journey.

The main timetable changes include:

Scottish Citylink is a joint venture between transport operators Stagecoach and ComfortDelGro.

Since the impact of the coronavirus in the UK, the company has implemented additional hygiene measures to protect passengers, frontline workers and office-based staff. 

In addition to well-established and rigorous cleaning regimes, there has been more frequent cleaning of main customer touch-points on vehicles, such as hand poles and grab rails.
