Bus services : latest

Following constituents' concerns about the timetable reliability of 73 Tayway services recently, I raised this matter with Stagecoach's Operations Director for East Scotland, who has responded as follows :

"We have had problems adhering to the timetables on all services due to the weather conditions of the last few weeks.  Whilst most of the main roads are now clear and easily passable there are still a number of side roads which are in a less acceptable condition.  Very few services are contained purely to main roads meaning that there is a knock-on effect on timetables."

The Courier today covered the issue of bus fares increases, including the feedback I have received from National Express Dundee and my own concerns about the fare increases.
