Please download the Protect Scotland app from NHS Scotland.
To help reduce the spread of coronavirus in Scotland we would like to encourage our customers to download NHS Scotland's Test & Protect app. Anyone aged 16 or over who lives in Scotland can use the app. The app will alert you if you have been in close contact with another app user who tests positive for coronavirus. And if you test positive, it can help in determining contacts that you may have otherwise missed while keeping your information private and anonymous.
How do I access the app?
The apps are designed to help us protect each other and reduce the spread of COVID-19. They can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play.

If you have lost something on board one of our buses, please contact our team on 0345 646 0707.
Our drivers collect all lost property found on our buses and return it to their depot, but it can take up to 3 working days to register lost property items on our system.
Due to government advice regarding non essential travel, collection of items is strictly by appointment only and walk ins will not be accepted or permitted. We ask that you reserve this time for collection of essential items only, such as lost medication or wallet. This is due to our team operating only on a skeleton staff basis.
Motherwell Travel Shop
Please be advised that the above lost property process applies to our Motherwell Travel Shop which, following Government advice, will no longer be open to customers.
Customers who wish to purchase a ticket can do so via the First Bus mobile app, which can be downloaded in your app or google play store.
We want to thank you for your continued support and understanding. This is essential as we work together to maintain safe travel across our networks for those who need it.
Here’s a short video we’ve created to highlight the additional safety measures we have introduced to keep our passengers and staff safe.
