Stagecoach is to cut bus services across Tayside and Fife due to the coronavirus outbreak.
From Monday March 23, a reduced timetable will run “until further notice” because of a lack of demand as people self-isolate during the Covid-19 crisis.
The temporary measures will see most services adopting a Sunday timetable every day of the week, with some routes having additional morning journeys.
A statement from Stagecoach East Scotland said: ” Following the government advice to avoid non-essential travel, along with the closing of schools, colleges and universities to combat Covid-19, we’re seen a significant reduction in passengers using our services and therefore need to make some changes to the services we offer.
“We understand that travel on our services will still remain vital for many, so we’ve tried to ensure that critical routes are maintained wherever possible.
“These changes will begin on Monday 23rd March, and although they are temporary changes, they are in place until further notice across Fife, Perth & Kinross, Dundee and Angus.
“Unfortunately our online Journey Planner will not display accurate info at the moment, so please use the timetable links we’ve provided in the below link before setting off on your travels.
“Please be assured that the well-established and rigorous cleaning regimes on board our buses will remain in place at all times, and that contactless payment is available on all our vehicles.
“At this uncertain time, we want to reassure you that our absolute priority is to protect the safety of our customers and our own employees. Our focus is on how best we can maintain essential services, safeguard jobs and ensure that we continue to be a central part of our economy and communities.”
