MORE buses will be on Ayrshire's roads from next week as lockdown easing continues. 

Stageocach West have confirmed there will be a service level increase across some critical services starting from Monday (August 3) 

The bus firm have updated their network in line with the latest Scottish Government guidance.

Some service levels are set to increase, whilst other services will continue to operate less frequently than they did before COVID-19 restrictions, and some routes will continue to operate reduced routes.

Additional changes are planned for the Isle of Arran which will run from Monday, August 10.

Fiona Doherty, managing director of Stagecoach West Scotland, said: “Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked closely with local authorities and have been proud to play our part in keeping key workers on the move and communities connected during lockdown.

“We have started to see the change in travel patterns that the pandemic has brought about, with people working and travelling in a different way, but public transport continues to have a very important role to play.

“Passengers can travel on our services with confidence.

“The safety of our customers and our employees is always our top priority and our dedicated team pay special attention to the items you come into contact with such as handrails, bells, seats and poles to make sure they're regularly and thoroughly cleaned”
