More on West End bus services improvements

Last month, I welcomed proposed bus service improvements that assist service provision in parts of the West End and are due to be implemented on 30th June.   These will see improved links for areas such as Pentland, Scott Street and Glenagnes Road with Lochee and Perth Road, daytime off peak Monday to Saturday, but will also give back an evening and a Sunday service to Pentland, City Road and surrounding areas.

With grateful thanks to Suzy Scott who provides hugely useful route and timetable information on her website, the following downloads will be of use to residents:

Summary of overall changes - download here.    Please note that the new school bus services detailed below for the Harris Academy decant are likely to be registered with the Traffic Commissioner from 30th June, the services will not start until the start of the new term in August.  The download refers to the first Tuesday of terms but, because of the decant preparations, the start of the new 2013/14 academic year at Harris Academy will be Thursday 15th August, so the 11S/12S will commence that day.
