The council’s shoppers’ bus service restarted in June 2022 after being withdrawn at the end of March 2020 due to the pandemic. It aims to help older residents mainly in sheltered housing get to a supermarket and back each week.
The service operates Tuesday to Friday every week and in the
West End runs as follows :
Tuesdays – Pick up at Tullideph Place (12.05pm), Logie
lounge in Lime Street (12.10pm) then Pine Court in Logie Gardens (12.15pm) to
take folk to Tesco Riverside and return.
Thursdays – Pick up at Corso Street (10.10am), Pennycook
Lane (10.15am), Muirlands (10.20am) and Paton’s Lane (10.25am) to take folk to
Tesco Riverside and return.
Sadly, the SNP administration on the council decided to axe
the service from April 2024, something the Liberal Democrat Group opposed at
the council budget earlier this year.
Unfortunately the SNP decision to axe the service won the vote.
The council is now trying to get one of the community
transport operators to take the service on and our group strongly feels this
vital service must be saved.
