Stagecoach are making amendments to their commercial bus network on Monday 26th November. Information on the changes can be found the Stagecoach website.
These changes are primarily due to passenger comments and suggestions following the changes which happened in the summer.
The main item with this change is the withdrawal of service X2 (Ferrytoll, Duloch, Amazon) which is being withdrawn due to low passenger numbers. However to allow for continued access between Masterton Road / Lapwing Drive and Ferrytoll P&R, Bay Travel have agreed to divert service 89 for the early morning and early evening journeys .
There will be bus service changes on Monday 13th August. These changes are mainly due to the award of Fife Councils North Fife Tender, where Moffat & Williamson won some of the routes currently operated by Stagecoach.
Stagecoach are also taking the opportunity to amend timetables throughout Fife, due to passenger feedback received from previous consultations. Bay Travel are also amending service 13 and service 18. A summary of the changes for each of the operators can be found by clicking here.
Timetables should be available at the beginning of August. The timetables will also be available online via the Stagecoach, Moffat & Williamson and Bay Travel website.

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.
