COMMUNITY BUS SERVICES
UTTG is looking at what a community bus service mght look like. It could operate different services in different ways. For example:
- It could provide bookable bus services along routes or to communities that currently are not serviced such as Kinrloch Rannoch to Abereldy or to Daluguise.
- It could offer bus services to clubs and groups.
- It could offer a more regular 'round the town' bus service in Abereldy.
- It could offer a bus service to link with trains.
- It could offer an express service to Perth from Abereldy in morning and eveing.
