Bus Users Scotland update

With a number of major consultations currently underway in Scotland, it’s a pivotal time for the country’s bus and transport networks.

Greig Mackay from Bus Users Scotland, attended a recent seminar chaired by the Transport Minister for Scotland, Humza Yousaf, at the Scottish Parliament which looked at Smart Ticketing and local bus services.

Humza Yousaf also chaired an event organised by Message Matters at the stunning Corinthian Club in Glasgow. Greig joined the round-table discussion which focused on supporting local bus services in Scotland.

Bus Users Scotland has run a number of Your Bus Matters events including, most recently, Thurso and Wick in partnership with Stagecoach North Scotland. These events were specifically aimed at identifying which bus network passengers want to see operating in the Caithness area of the Highlands.

Greig and Bus Compliance Officer, Deb Biscoe, joined Stagecoach North Scotland in Elgin and Inverness recently, for the launch of the company’s new coaches for its No 10 service. The vehicles boast leather seats, free wi-fi, climate control, on-board toilet and USB charging points, as well as vehicle tracking for real-time passenger information.
