Stagecoach Bus Changes

February 20, 2017

 

 

I was made aware today that Stagecoach will be making a number of additional changes to timetables in the area from 24 April 2017, and will be holding consultation events tomorrow and Wednesday (21 & 22 Feb) in Wick and Thurso respectively. Sorry for the short notice.

 

See below for the proposed timetable for Caithness along with a list of pertinent information on the service changes in the area as taken from the Stagecoach website at http://bit.ly/2meJ8oQ. Full details of the consultation events are as follows:

  • 21 February - Riverside Car Park, Wick, 11:00-13:00

Feedback on the proposed changes can be made direct to Stagecoach at nscotmarketing@stagecoachbus.com until 3 March. With regards to the services withdrawn following a Highland Council tender process, Caithness Transport Forum will take this up with Highland Council and circulate any further information as it becomes available.
