First Scotland East Service X38 Service Split7 Oct 2020 all areas
Service X38 route split, from Monday 12th October 2020
Due to capacity issues on the Falkirk to Stirling section of the service, from Monday 12th October, Service X38 will be split at Falkirk Upper Newmarket Street on early/daytime & peak journeys.
Services operating from Edinburgh will continue as an X38 and will use the current route to Falkirk Upper Newmarket Street then extend to Falkirk Community Hospital where the service will terminate and commence the next trip. Services from Stirling will operate as a 38 and will use the current route to Falkirk Upper Newmarket Street where it will terminate/commence next journey.
We understand this will have an impact on some customers who we know undertake cross town trips, however these changes allow us to enhance social distancing on the busier section of the route – which cannot be used on the full route due to a low bridge at Linlithgow.
