First Bus step up ser­vice

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News - Ian Bunting

First Bus in La­nark­shire has in­creased the fre­quency of its ser­vices to of­fer cus­tomers “an even bet­ter ser­vice”.

Im­prove­ments have been made to the com­pany’s 241 and 266 ser­vices, with each route of­fer­ing a day­time fre­quency of ev­ery 10 min­utes or bet­ter, Mon­day to Satur­day.

Sun­day jour­neys will also con­tinue un­changed on both ser­vices.

Ser­vice 241 will ben­e­fit from the de­liv­ery of a fleet of brand new Alexan­der Den­nis En­viro 200 buses.

Each bus comes with e- leather seat­ing, USB charg­ing sock­ets and free wi-fi.

The buses are also fit­ted with the very lat­est ul­tra-low emis­sion Euro 6 en­gines, mak­ing them cleaner to run and, in turn, kinder to the en­vi­ron­ment.

Graeme Mac­far­lan, com­mer­cial di­rec­tor at First Bus, said: “We are pleased to be in­creas­ing our ser­vice fre­quen­cies in La­nark­shire as this will pro­vide cus­tomers with even more travel op­tions.

“We’re also proud to have a fleet of brand new buses op­er­at­ing in the area, tak­ing our in­vest­ment in new ve­hi­cles in re­cent years to 113 for the area.

“We look for­ward to wel­com­ing cus­tomers on board.”
