Perrymans takeover of Scottish Borders services imminent

Perrymans takeover of Scottish Borders services imminent

West Coast Motors (which took over Perryman’s Buses in 2016) is now in advanced talks with First Scotland East to take over its services in the Scottish Borders.

Perryman’s Buses has also announced plans to alter its Hawick Town bus service H1/H2 to include more areas of the town. The decision to adjust the current timetable follows a series of discussions with local community groups, councillors and council officials.

The changes, which are subject to approval from Scottish Borders Council and the Scottish Traffic Commissioner, include extending the route in Burnfoot and serving the new housing estate in Stonefield. Once approved the updated timetable should be introduced from Monday 22 May 2017.

Changes to the timetable include:

Burnfoot 

Route now operates from Burnfoot Shops via Kenilworth Avenue, Burnfoot Road, Burnhead Road, Eildon Road, Galalaw Road, Hillend Drive, Fraser Avenue, Kenilworth Avenue, Burnfoot Road, to Burnfoot Shops.

Bright Street

There is no longer a service on Cheviot Road and Bright Street on journeys from Vertish. 

Vertish/Stonefield

On journeys from Vertish buses will operate from Kirk Wynd, Liddesdale Road, Stonefield (anti-clockwise), Liddesdale Crescent, Slitrig Crescent and current route via the Bridal Shop.

The new timetable will be available online shortly www.perrymansbuses.co.uk
