Bus Service Changes – Monday 3rd August 2020

Timetable Changes from Monday 3rd August 2020 

From Monday the 3rd August most bus services across Fife will return to near normal levels (pre lockdown) however there will still be some services/journeys that will not operate at this stage.  The increase in services is mainly down to the the Scottish Governments Covid-19 bus Support Grant that covers the loss of fare-paying passenger revenue that bus operators are experiencing due to physical distancing and reduced carrying capacity.  Passengers are reminded that physical distancing is still in place and the wearing of a face covering is mandatory on public transport.
To find out what services will be operating from the 3rd August please click on the relevant operator’s website below.

As we have fewer seats available, the capacity of our buses will be reduced meaning you may seen a “bus full” sign on the bus the wish to board and be unable to board. If you see this, please wait at your stop for the next available service.

Remember – it’s now mandatory to wear a face covering when travelling with us. Exceptions do apply and more information can be found on our FAQ page.

Updated advice for using Fife’s bus stations and public transport including the mandatory use of face coverings

We want everyone to stay safe when travelling and using our bus stations during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve introduced some new measures for people to follow when using Fife’s bus stations, which will go back to their normal opening hours from Monday 22 June.

In line with the Scottish Government’s announcement, a face covering will be mandatory on public transport and in our bus stations (also from Monday 22 June). It applies to all passengers and staff in public areas, although there will be exemptions especially for those who are not able to wear a face covering for specific medical reasons. Children under five will also be exempt.

When entering and leaving bus stations, please use the hand sanitisers provided. We have a sign posted one-way system in place to help with physical distancing. Please respect others and allow them to leave areas before you pass.

When sitting in the bus station, leave a seat between you and passengers from any other household. Only one person can use the toilets at a time.

Capacity will gradually increase on buses as the Scottish Government works through its phased route map and more people need to use public transport for work. Allow extra time for your journey as you may have to wait for the next bus if the bus is full.

Please wait for other passengers to get off the bus before you board and let one person at a time get on the bus to buy their ticket. If you can, use a bank card for contactless payment, or pre-pay online. If you pay by cash, please try to have the exact change.

As in bus stations, wear a face covering throughout your journey and leave a seat in between you and passengers from any other household.

Tony McRae, Fife Council’s Service Manager for Passenger Transport Services said: “Physical distancing will remain in place on public transport for the foreseeable future so before you travel ask yourself if you really need to and if there is a quieter route or less busy time to do so.

“Please always follow the face covering and physical distancing measures that are in place. They’re there to protect all passengers and staff.”

If you have any concerns about safety measures in our bus stations, please speak to the Bus Station Supervisor.

Proposed Subsidised Bus Services from August 2020

Fife Council currently provides subsidy, either in part of whole, for the following bus services in Mid Fife:

B1,36, M4, 11, 12, 14A, 14, 108, 13, 13A, 32, 32A, 33B, 37, 37A, 41B, 43A, 44A, 45, 49, 66, 66A, 67, 67A, 67B

In May and June last year the Council carried out consultation on these routes and asked the public for their opinions on the services we currently support in Mid Fife.  We used these comments to help influence the routes which were put out to tender in December 2019. The tender bids have now been returned, assessed and awarded and we are able to retain the majority of the current subsidised network plus some enhancements.

Prior to the tender documents being returned, Bay Travel (service 13) and Moffat & Williamson (service M4) advised that they were intending to take these services on a commercial basis, this in turn allowed us to include 4 new additional services that were requested during the tender process. These services are the M3, M6 and service 18, further details are explained in this summary.

There is however still the opportunity for some minor tweaking of these services prior to their operation in August 2020.

We would like to encourage current and potential bus users to complete the short consultation. When completing the consultation think about:

•  Places/facilities you go to

•  How frequent the bus is

•  Your need to travel at a specific time, how flexible can you be in your travel arrangements?

•  Journey time – too long? Does the bus pass an area where no one ever gets on?

•  Evening travel – how important is it?

•  Sunday travel – how important is it?

•  How far you can walk to a bus stop

•  Connecting with other buses or trains – how important is this?

The consultation can be found by clicking here.

 

Scotrail – Coronavirus Information

Scotland’s Railway is playing a critical role help our country emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic – providing transport for key workers such as NHS staff, emergency workers and carers.

The Government has made it clear that public transport remains for essential journeys only, so that key workers and rail station staff can maintain a physical distance from each other. If your journey is not essential, please do not travel.

If you do need to travel with please think about your safety, and the safety of others.

We urge you to use a face-covering at stations and on trains, and if you think it’s not safe to board a train, don’t do it and wait for another service.

Scotrail are continuing to operate a revised timetable, with a focus on providing a service in areas of the country, and at times, where people need it most.

The timetable includes earlier and later services for NHS workers at hospitals after consultation with health boards, and through feedback from customers on the services that are still being well used.

Major stations now have floor markings and other signs to outline a safe distance of two metres, while some station facilities such as waiting rooms are closed.

In order to maintain a physical distance from others, please expect an increase in the time it takes to buy a ticket at a station and board a train.

There may be occasions over the coming months when boarding your normal train may not be possible in busier times. Buying tickets in advance through the ScotRail app or website will reduce your need to wait.

Our timetable will be kept under regular review, and we’ll react to any further developments.

Five rules for safer travel – 26 May 2020.Five rules for safer travel: don't travel if you feel unwell. Avoid travel between 7am and 9am, and between 4pm and 6.30pm.
