Fife Council Kick Start Services

Fife Council were successful obtaining grant funding from the Smarter Choices Smarter Places (SCSP) initiative. SCSP is a Scottish Government scheme to encourage and develop sustainable and active travel throughout communities.
Following feedback received from Local Communities and transport operators, Fife Council has introduced the kick-start journeys listed below.  These kick-start projects are designed to provide short term funding with the anticipation that these journeys become commercially viable over a period of time.
We have added Sunday journeys to this service which will be operated by Stagecoach.  Bay Travel will continue to operate the Monday to Saturday journeys.  Bay Travel tickets will be accepted on the Stagecoach-operated Sunday journeys.
On this service additional journeys have been added from Kincardine to Ferrytoll Park and Ride and Inverkeithing in the morning at 0604 & 0654.  Three journeys from Inverkeithing and Ferrytoll Park and Ride in the evening at 1740, 1800 & 1840.  The 1740 journey operates to Cairneyhill and 1800 & 1840 journeys extend beyond Crombie to Kincardine on request.
 This service will provide direct links between Duloch Park, Camdean and Rosyth Health Centre, running hourly Monday to Friday from morning until mid-afternoon.
This service will provide new direct links between Saline, Steelend, Dunfermline and the Marine Harvest site in Rosyth, as well as links to Ferrytoll Park and Ride.  The service runs Monday to Friday to match the Marine Harvest shift times.
We have maintained the 0914 Mountfleurie to Leven Monday to Friday, although this journey now runs 10 minutes earlier.  A new Monday to Friday journey from Mountfleurie at 0704 to Leven has also been introduced.
This service will be extended to Rosyth in the evenings and Sundays in an effort to provide connections with Edinburgh services.
 Travel Information is available on the Traveline Scotland website or by calling 0871 200 22 33.  If you want to see the route your bus takes, this can be done by using the interactive mapping on the journey planning page of Travel Fife
