Additional buses are set to be added to a popular route during the festive season.

McGill's Buses has confirmed the changes to their Clyde Flyer service, which runs between Largs, Greenock, Braehead and Glasgow, will be in force from Wednesday, November 29, to Saturday, December 23.

During this period, additional buses will run from mid-morning to mid-afternoon between Wednesday and Saturday each week.

The changes are being introduced in response to the growing number of commuters using the Clyde Flyer service, which was named as one of the most scenic bus routes in the UK in 2022.

Alex Hornby, group managing director at McGill's Buses, said: "Clyde Flyer is one of our best-loved routes and performs an essential transport link for commuters, day trippers and tourists alike - all year round - and we're delighted to offer more buses, more seats and more capacity during the busy, festive season.

"These extra buses are further evidence of McGill’s doing what's right to support local economies in the vital Christmas trading season, and give the coastal communities in Largs, Inverkip, Wemyss Bay, Gourock, Greenock and Port Glasgow extra confidence in using public transport as a viable alternative to the car or staying at home.

"We continue to see strong growth in customers on our convenient, four times an hour daytime timetable - so much so that this extra capacity is very much needed.

"It's important that we give our customers the confidence to use the bus - particularly given the ongoing popularity of free travel for under 22s and over 60s and the attractiveness of destinations along this busy route."

McGill's full festive timetable has now been published to help customers plan their journeys during the Christmas period, as the company actively promotes the bus as a "go to" mode of transport during December. 

This includes the popular Glasgow Nightbus network being extended to cover Hogmanay on December 31, as well as at weekends.
