As a result of dramatic reductions in passengers combined with the closure of school, transport operators across the UK have been given special dispensation to make changes to services with 24 hours notice.

We have so far been notified of the following changes to bus services which will impact Falkirk Council residents and employees. Please note that in all cases below, it is highly likely that there will be further short notice changes to services as the Covid-19 outbreak develops.


First will revert to their school holiday timetable from Monday 23 March 2020. This should have limited impact in the Falkirk Council area.
