Stagecoach Service Changes – Monday 25th January 2021

A lot has changed in the last year and Stagecoach have worked hard to ensure passengers get where they need to be but understandably, alot less people are using bus services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

They’ve been able to keep a lot of their bus and coach network the same with the help of Government subsidy, but with continued travel restrictions and changing work patterns, they can’t continue running the  pre-pandemic network in full.

 

Local bus networks have been well used, however longer distance Express services are only being used by around 30% – 40% of customers compared to previous levels.
Due to this Stagecoach are making changes to their Express services from Monday 25th January, along with some minor changes to our local services to allow connections.

 

The list below outlines the services that are changing.  The new timetables are available by clicking on the service number.  The new timetables will allow you to see how your service will change – you may find that you need to change buses at a bus station or park and ride, but the same links between key locations are still available.

There are also some handy summary timetables below, some of which show the connections you’ll need to make to reach your destination – you can find these at the bottom of this update.

Please don’t forget, that right now, your travel should only be for essential purposes.

 Service 36: Glenrothes – Perth

Timing point in Kintillo Paradise Avenue removed, no change to route.

Service 42: Glenrothes – Ladybank – Tayport – Dundee

Stay safe when you’re travelling on Stagecoach Services

As more people in return to work, government advice continues to be to only travel if your journey is necessary. Buses are here if you need them and play a vital role in letting people make necessary journeys.

The safety of our customers and employees is our priority so, in line with government guidance, we’ve put in place measures to help our customers to practise social distancing and travel on our services.

 

Make a plan:

  • Allow extra time for your journey and try to travel at off-peak times, where possible.
  • Check our latest timetables before you travel.

 

Social distancing at the bus stop:

Travelling Safely on our services

 

  • At bus stops, try to keep 2 metres away from anyone else in the queue.
  • Let people off the bus before you get on and try to keep a safe distance between you, the driver and other customers.
  • Pay by your smartcard, contactless card or smart phone where possible.

 

Social distancing on the bus:

Travelling Safely on our services

 

  • Sit in the window seat, leaving the seats in front and behind you empty and don’t sit directly behind the driver.
  • Only one person can sit in a double seat, unless you’re with a member of your household.
  • Don’t stand on the bus.
  • Once you’re on the bus open a window, if you can, to help with ventilation.
  • Wear a face covering. It’s an added level of safety for you, your fellow passengers and our drivers.
  • When leaving the bus stay seated, ring the bell and take everything with you.
  • Let us know if you think your bus is too busy to allow for social distancing.

Paying for your journey:

Payment Options

 

  • You can use contactless payment methods on all our buses.
  • You can also buy tickets online and on our app.
  • If you can only use cash, please have the exact fare.

 

New social distancing measures are in place for added safety. If you’ve got   feedback for us, we’d love to hear it.

For more details about timetables and other information about travelling at this time, check out our Coronavirus page.
