BUS bosses have pledged to produce a plan for the future of an endangered route at a public meeting.

McGill’s will hold an open discussion with customers on Thursday about potential changes to the number 23 and X23 services.

The buses link Glasgow with Erskine, Inchinnan and Renfrew.

Around 350 people attended a public meeting last week and the Greenock-based firm has been listening to feedback from customers.

However, there was an extended fall-out from last week’s meeting as McGill’s managing director Ralph Roberts and Renfrewshire Council leader Iain Nicolson clashed over investment in the area’s roads.

Cllr Iain Nicolson wrote on Twitter: “We’re not apologising for biggest ever investment in roads.

“Your ‘customers’ didn’t buy it tonight either. Happy to talk.”

But Mr Roberts hit back: “Over-riding negative feedback last night Iain on late running buses. Over 90 per cent of late running is congestion, infrastructure and roadworks related.”

Thursday's meeting will be held at the Normandy Hotel, Renfrew, from 7pm.

There will be a drop-in session during the day, from noon until 6.45pm.
