Shake-up of ser­vices pro­posed

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

TRANS­PORT giant Stage­coach is con­sid­er­ing a shake-up of ser­vices across Perth and Kin­ross.

Bosses have pro­posed ax­ing the X8 ser­vice be­tween Ar­broath, Dundee and Perth — just a few months af­ter it was in­tro­duced.

Stage­coach said the route was es­tab­lished to “pro­mote pas­sen­ger growth” but added: “The ad­di­tional ca­pac­ity has proved mostly un­needed and pas­sen­ger num­bers have not grown ad­e­quately to jus­tify its con­tin­ued pro­vi­sion.”

The 330 Blairingone to Dol­lar ser­vice could also be scrapped, while timetable changes could be made to sev­eral other routes in­clud­ing the X56 Perth to Ed­in­burgh, the 57 Dundee-blair­gowrie-perth and 8/9 North Muir­tonPerth-aviva.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic have been urged to com­ment on the pro­pos­als by Fri­day be­fore a fi­nal de­ci­sion is made.

Any changes will be in­tro­duced on May 14.
