Auchterarder Community Bus Group (ACBuG) is really pleased to confirm that the new Auchterarder Town Bus Service will commence on Monday, 05 August 2019.
Carol Duncan, ACBuG Secretary and one of the original members of the Group said “Lisa McGraw, Tom Gray and I had initial discussions a few years ago about the need for a Town Bus Service and it is so exciting that it has become a reality; with the start date now just a couple of weeks away.
Carol added “ACBuG will be holding a coffee morning at the Aytoun Hall, Auchterarder, on Saturday, 20 July 2019 (commencing at 10.00am) to promote the new Town Bus Service and allow local residents to come along and find out about it. Timetables will be available and ACBuG Members will be on hand to provide information about the routes, fares etc.”
Councillor Tom Gray, ACBuG Trustee, commented “Reaching this major milestone has been a real community effort and would not have been possible without the support and encouragement of a number of key stakeholders; with the financial support received from several local organisations/trusts absolutely essential.”
Andrew Warrington, ACBuG Chair, indicated “The Town Bus Service leaflet will be distributed widely throughout the community prior to 05 August 2019, and we are happy to supply copies to local shops, community groups and other organisations on request. ACBuG members are really keen that locals who currently find it difficult to access the Town Centre, Health Centre etc are made aware of this new community based bus service.”
