Saturday free bus travel returns to Perth and Kinross

Perthshire residents and visitors can enjoy free bus travel on the first Saturday of every month.

Starting from Saturday, 1st June, locals can take advantage of the free bus travel offer for journeys made wholly in Perth & Kinross provided by local bus operators Stagecoach East Scotland, Docherty’s Midland Coaches, Elizabeth Yule, Sweeney’s Garage and Glenfarg Community Transport Group.

Passengers who have a free under 22, 60+, or disabled concessionary bus pass should use their bus pass as normal to travel.

The free bus travel initiative is designed to encourage people to use local bus services and promote sustainable travel.

Councillor Grant Laing, Perth and Kinross Council Leader said: “Following the success of the free bus travel in December, I’m delighted we can offer free bus travel first Saturday of every month for the rest of the year, helping families and visitors to our area to travel for free and visit anywhere in Perth and Kinross.

“This initiative not only encourages sustainable travel but also makes it easier for everyone to enjoy the fantastic events in Perth and Kinross this summer.

“Those who already benefit from free bus travel should present their cards as normal.

"Families will be able to travel to events on these dates for free – allowing families to enjoy these events without breaking the bank.”

The £120,000 funding for the free bus travel on the first Saturday of every month was agreed as part of this year’s Budget.
