In­creased ca­pac­ity on bus route

The Oban Times - - News -

CUS­TOMERS on the Ul­lapool to In­ver­ness coach route will once again ben­e­fit from ex­tra ca­pac­ity fol­low­ing an agree­ment be­tween Western Isles Coun­cil, Scot­tish Citylink and the High­lands and Is­lands Re­gional Trans­port Part­ner­ship.

Scot­tish Citylink, which op­er­ates the ser­vice on a com­mer­cial ba­sis with­out any pub­lic sec­tor in­vest­ment, can­not guar­an­tee it can add ex­tra ve­hi­cles to the route with less than 48 hours’ no­tice un­less the level of de­mand cov­ered the op­er­a­tional costs.

But Citylink con­firmed it does reg­u­larly de­ploy ad­di­tional coaches when book­ings for the ser­vice ex­ceed the ca­pac­ity more than 48 hours in ad­vance and are said to put on ex­tra Fri­day, Satur­day and Mon­day ser­vices dur­ing the sum­mer timetable.

CityLink has said it will work to­gether to en­sure this in­creased ca­pac­ity would be used wher­ever pos­si­ble when pas­sen­gers made an ad­vance book­ing.
