The Fife Bus service is set to get back on the road this week.

The Demand Responsive Transport Service (DRT) provides a free door-to-door transport for people who are unable to access mainstream public transport due to some form of reduced mobility.

Fife Council said a revised service will be reintroduced from Monday.

Bookable from tomorrow (Friday), the buses will run between 9am and 5.30pm and bookings can only be taken the day before travel with Sunday and Monday bookings taken on a Friday.

To ensure both service users and staff are kept safe, Covid-19 protection measures will be in place which will include PPE for staff, enhanced cleaning and social distancing measures. This means that only two passengers can access the vehicle at any one time.

As with other public transport services, passengers will be required to wear a face covering whilst travelling, unless they have an exempt medical condition.

Cllr Altany Craik, Convener of the Economy, Tourism, Strategic Planning & Transportation Committee, said: “I am pleased that we are now able to re-start our important Fife Bus service.

"Essential changes are in place to protect and safeguard older people and our vulnerable clients who have difficulty using mainstream public transport.

“Fife Council continues to review and adjust its activities to maintain critical services to Fifers, in line with updates from the government about Covid-19. Going forward, this service will be reviewed and changed to meet demand.”

At this time, the service will prioritise people who need to make essential trips, for example to attend medical appointments, GP visits and for essential shopping trips.
