From Wednesday 25 March bus services will move to Sunday timetables.
Metlink GM Scott Gallacher says, that while there are still a number of issues to work out, Metlink will be taking immediate steps to respond to the increased response levels.
“While rail passengers will see reduced services from Tuesday, we’ll work to deliver to the current timetables across the bus network until Wednesday, when Sunday timetables will be implemented,” says Mr Gallacher.
As part of the move to Sunday timetables, Metlink school bus services will not run from Wednesday.
Buses will no longer board from the front door. Metlink apologises to customers who rely on the accessibility options provided at the front door and encourages customers to find out more about Total Mobility services during this time by calling 0800 801 700.
Customers will be encouraged to continue their own physical distancing practices on all trains and buses, leaving a space next to them where they can.
Further updates will be posted when available. Metlink thanks passengers for their patience at this time.
