FOLLOWING the announcement the Killin to Callander bus is to be discontinued, a Stirling MSP has met with council officials.
Kingshouse Travel will be stopping the service after December 30 this year because of a shortage of drivers.
Bruce Crawford MSP met with representatives from Stirling Council’s transport department to discuss what happens next.
This comes after Stirling Council conducted a number of public consultations in the area to determine possible options.
Mr Crawford said: ‘Having met with Stirling Council officials, I am pleased efforts are being made to reach out to people in the local community as it is residents who use the current service who are best placed to advise what type of replacement would fulfil the needs of these particular communities.
‘The C60 bus has been met with deeply unfortunate circumstances and it is clear from the discussions I have had with transport representatives that the issues leading to the decision to discontinue the service centred around staffing.
‘I understand that, from the public meetings held, a range of different ideas and views were voiced by residents and I have been assured they will all be taken into account by officials when devising a strategy for replacing the crucial Killin to Callander link.’
