Stagecoach’s Fife Transport Boost

Stagecoach will shortly boost the Fife-Glasgow express network with nine new luxury coaches. This follows spending over the past year on five new coaches for the Fife-Edinburgh route, bringing the total spend to £4.4 million.

Dunfermline MSP Bill Walker said the investment, which coincides with the launch of the new Fife-Glasgow timetable on 12 November, should improve the standard of journeys for Dunfermline travellers.

He said: “I am very glad to see investment in these important commuter routes. The new coaches have an increased capacity of 65 seats, which can only be a good thing for Fife workers and shoppers who depend on these networks.

“Dunfermline already has a good express service to Glasgow, with coaches running up to every twenty minutes from our bus station. The improvement is mainly in the standard of vehicles.

“The new coaches will be convenient for disabled people, as they will feature a wheelchair lift for boarding. Passengers’ safety will be protected with CCTV, the coaches have toilets, and I’m sure workers will particularly appreciate the free wi-fi access, as will others.”
