Further enhancements to services across the network.
More than 50 services across the network returned to pre-covid timetables.
Service improvements implemented ahead of students returning across city and Greater Glasgow area.
First Glasgow are pleased to announce further enhancements to services across their network from Sunday September 13th as the city gets set to welcome students back for their new academic term.
Now, with a number of measures in place to ensure customer and staff safety remains a number one priority, timetables can now return closer to their normal levels and First Glasgow is urging passengers to get back to bus.
More than 50 services have now been returned to their pre-covid timetables to support an expected increase to demand with universities and colleges starting back for their new academic year in the next few weeks.
First Glasgow are focusing resource to services where demand has returned and a high level of route recovery is evident.
As a result, some other services will still be restricted in terms of service levels and customers are urged to refer to the First Bus website to check the full timetable information before travelling.
Graeme Macfarlan, Commercial Director First Glasgow, said “We are looking forward to welcoming back our students over the coming weeks and month as the vast majority of services now begin to operate nearer to pre-Covid timetable levels. We look forward to welcoming back many students to the city and we are ready to do our bit in supporting our young people to get back to University and colleges across the city.
“We are grateful to all our customers for adhering to our on-board measures and thank them for their support. These measures, together with enhanced anti-viral cleaning and the increase in frequency will provide reassurance to our customers that our services are safe and reliable. We are delighted to play our part in helping to get the local economy moving again.”
