Post Re: West lothain changes ** JUNE** FIRST GOING TO LANARK!!
interesting indeed...
so thats a 3rd First Scotland East service operating within the First Glasgow operating area...
Lanark bus station/terminus is going to need expanded at this rate with all the services running out of it.

so whats the guess about what the service will be primarily booked to operate with.... bus or coach...
i only ask/mention it since the X15 is (as i understand it) booked for one of the Plaxton Profile coaches, but can be operated by a bus

Post Re: West lothain changes ** JUNE** FIRST GOING TO LANARK!!
I should point out THERE IS MORE TO COME!!!!

I believe the 77 will be every 2 hours with a dart, I wonder if there is a replacement for the X14? there has been talk of making the x15 houlry but via Blackburn, whitburn.

Thing is unless first overhauls the fares and weekly tickets none of the "new"services will work, Blue bus is on top of 557 and first 26 yet blue bus gives change and is cheaper and get most of the passengers.

The 555/777 circulars, introduced in May 2007, were run using BRDG funding. This provided money from the Scottish Government, to get the routes started with the funding gradually reduced over the next four years so that by the end of the fourth year the services would have generated enough revenue to become self-supporting.

It's fair to say that these services have regularly carried more fresh air than they have passengers during the last four years, despite the tweaks to both services last year, and as the funding for them is about to run out it's hardly surprising that they are being withdrawn.

E&M Horsburgh has never really cared for this service when it come in back in May 2007. On the 4-5 times I have used this service ( last time was just month ago) bus run 10mins late, the driver went the wrong way, and sat at St johns H for 5mins doing nothing. I heard of passenger waiting for the service to turn up and it never does. I have seen plenty buses coming in late and leaving not in service.

The believe from the start there need local passenger IE broxburn - livingston to make the service commercail, from that point I know it was never work, would fail.

Airport passengers and workers for gyle/ Edinburgh park have been playing second best to local traffic. There should have extend the 559 into the airport, and speedy up the old 555/777 to use the M8. It can work but will E&M Horsburgh are crap company who can never proivde stable service, and from what I heard there going down the pun right now
