Stage­coach of­fers cheaper fares for Fife and Tay­side

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

A bus firm will roll out cheaper day re­turn tick­ets across Tay­side and Fife next week.

Stage­coach East Scot­land said jour­neys across Dundee, An­gus, Fife and Perthshire will be of­fered at prices rang­ing be­tween £5 and £8 as of Mon­day November 20.

The com­pany said the va­ri­ety of new re­turn tick­ets can be used on trips be­tween the likes of Perth, Ed­in­burgh, Dun­fermline, Ar­broath and Dundee.

Stage­coach said they will cost up to 40% less than equiv­a­lent Dayrider tick­ets on many of its east­ern routes.

Manag­ing di­rec­tor of Stage­coach East Scot­land, Paul Thomas, said: “We’re very ex­cited to an­nounce the in­tro­duc­tion of these new day re­turn tick­ets, es­pe­cially with the fes­tive sea­son just around the cor­ner.

“These day re­turn tick­ets will al­low cus­tomers to en­joy a great day out with the fam­ily for less.

“We hope the in­tro­duc­tion of these new tick­ets will also ben­e­fit com­muters get­ting to and from work day to day and en­cour­age us­age of our new and im­proved ser­vices.”

Teens de­tained in con­nec­tion with fire at Aberdeen school

Four teenagers have been de­tained in con­nec­tion with an in­ci­dent of wil­ful fire rais­ing at a dis­used school build­ing in Aberdeen.

Po­lice said three youths aged 15 and one aged 14 will be re­ported fol­low­ing a blaze at Cordyce School in Dyce.

Crews from the Scot­tish Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice were called to the blaze at around 11pm on Mon­day.

Six ap­pli­ances were sent to the scene and more than 30 fire­fight­ers took about three hours to bring the flames un­der con­trol.

Po­lice Scot­land of­fi­cers also at­tended.

De­tec­tive In­spec­tor David Howieson said: “The build­ing has been ex­ten­sively dam­age and it goes with­out say­ing that this could have been a much more se­ri­ous in­ci­dent.

“Thank­fully no one was in­jured.

“We urge any­one who saw any­thing or has any knowl­edge which may as­sist our in­quiries gets in touch with us on 101.”
