Ian Craig, Managing Director said:

‘We endeavour to keep ticket prices as low as possible but this is an extremely challenging time for everyone. As with the majority of public transport providers, we have had to review our prices as a result of Government funding cuts and rising operating costs. We know price increases are never welcome and this decision has not been taken lightly. It is however a necessary step to ensure we safeguard services as best we can and continue to invest in the quality of our operation and our environmental objectives.’

‘We appreciate that our customers are experiencing their own financial challenges and we have endeavoured to keep the increases to a minimum. Even with these fare increases, we remain one of the most cost-effective and value-for-money operators not just in Scotland but UK-wide.’
