Ex­tra ca­pac­ity on coach route

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

UL­LAPOOL to In­ver­ness coach pas­sen­gers should ben­e­fit from ex­tra ca­pac­ity fol­low­ing an agree­ment to put an ex­tra coach on the route.

Con­cerns about ca­pac­ity on the ser­vice, which con­nects with the ferry to and from Stornoway, were raised at a meet­ing of the Comhairle’s trans­porta­tion and in­fras­truc­ture com­mit­tee.

Ser­vice op­er­a­tor Scot­tish Ci­tylink al­ready reg­u­larly de­ploys an ad­di­tional coach when­ever book­ings for the ser­vice ex­ceed the ca­pac­ity more than 48 hours in ad­vance of the de­par­ture time.

At the meet­ing the bus op­er­a­tor agreed it would aim to en­sure an in­creased ca­pac­ity ser­vice would be de­ployed wher­ever pos­si­ble to en­sure pas­sen­gers are not stranded on the main­land.
