The Oban Times - - Districts -

A BUS com­pany is ex­pand­ing its Oban tours and ser­vices.

West Coast Mo­tors, which op­er­ates City Sightseeing Oban and other bus routes in the town, is in­tro­duc­ing three new Oban tours.

Un­til Septem­ber 24, City Sightseeing Oban will op­er­ate Oban to Al­tan­tic Bridge, Oban to Con­nel Bridge, and Oban to Con­nel and Eas­dale.

Rang­ing from one hour to two hours and 35 min­utes, the tours not only cap­ture the bustling town and its har­bour, but also pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity to dis­cover and ex­plore some of the West Coast’s most breath­tak­ing coun­try­side and seascape.

The tours will op­er­ate daily with a newly re­fur­bished open­top dou­ble decker ve­hi­cle.

The com­pany has also in- creased the fre­quency of its ser­vice 5/405 Oban to Dun­beg. The route takes in a num­ber of lo­cal at­trac­tions, in­clud­ing Dun­staffnage Cas­tle and Ocean Ex­plorer Cen­tre.

West Coast Mo­tors is hop­ing the ad­di­tional tours and sum­mer ser­vice will en­cour­age more peo­ple out of cars and ease the town’s traf­fic con­ges­tion.

Rus­sell Dods, Oban and Mull area man­ager, said: ‘Dur­ing the sum­mer months we ex­pe­ri­ence an in­crease in the vol­ume of cars on the roads in and around the town.

‘Our en­hanced route and tours, which are serv­ing the ar­eas main at­trac­tions and lo­ca­tions, should hope­fully en­cour­age both vis­i­tors and lo­cal peo­ple to ditch the car and hop on the bus.’
