Plan for new bus numbers, operators and timetables

Have your say

PUBLICLY-funded bus services throughout West Lothian are set to be overhauled from next month.

For some little-used routes, a pre-booked taxibus service will be introduced rather than a conventional bus.

And new bus numbers, timetables and operators are also to be introduced for many of the services.

A West Lothian Council spokesperson said: “We provide a range of bus services not provided by the free market, to support the needs of our communities to access services and employment, as well as reach family and friends.

“All of the main links between West Lothian towns have been maintained, and in some cases, enhanced. This exercise has been essential in order to keep services in place at an affordable subsidy level, and service performance will be monitored closely.”

Timetables for the new services will shortly be available online on the council’s website.
