Services 914/915/916 (Glasgow to Skye), 918 (Oban to Fort William and Inverness), 926 (Glasgow to Campbeltown) and 976 (Glasgow to Oban) will be operating a winter timetable from 30 September 2019.

We are pleased to announce service 15 has been reinstated since Monday 12 August 2019.

The service will operate every hour from 0645 (leaving Milngavie) to 1805 (leaving City Centre). Journey times have been adjusted to take into consideration on-going congestion issues on the line of route. 

Whilst this is great news for both our customers and Glasgow Citybus team, we must stress increased bus usage of the service is required to ensure the route is successful.

The Milngavie to Anniesland section of the route is operated as part of two-year tender awarded to Glasgow Citybus by SPT.

In addition to this we are reinstating the commercial element of the route between Anniesland and the City Centre, with some commercial journeys between Milngavie and Anniesland also included.

We hope you support your local bus service and choose to travel on service 15.

Timetables are available on bus and online.

For more information, please read our Service 15 Q&A.

Bus Industry Urges Politicians To Back Change

We have joined forces with bus operators across Scotland, and are calling for practical changes to help our industry flourish and deliver better services to customers.

The move comes following the publication of a report commissioned by CPT Scotland, the trade association which represents the bus industry, which has revealed the reasons behind the recent decline in bus usage.

Independent research by KPMG (Trends in Scottish Bus Patronage), examined Scottish patronage trends and concludes, despite bus industry efforts to boost customer numbers and develop services, operators are being hampered by a range of factors including rising car use, congestion, changing shopping habits and reduced public sector investment.
