Western Isles MSP, Alasdair Allan, has today welcomed a decision by Citylink to run additional buses on Wednesday and Thursday this week to cope with increased demand.
People travelling to take part in the Royal National Mòd in Oban and families enjoying the school holidays had found that, by Monday afternoon, these services had already become fully booked.
After several constituents had been in touch, Alasdair Allan made a request for the bus company to run further vehicles on these days.
Commenting, Alasdair Allan said:
“I’m pleased that Citylink has responded promptly and helpfully to my request in this instance to prevent Mòd travellers and families enjoying the school holidays from being stranded.
“This bus connection constitutes a lifelines service as it is vital for onward connections for people coming from the islands. I trust that Citylink will continue to work to ensure it meets the public’s needs all year round in the future.”
