Angus Council wants your views on Montrose bus services

Angus council is seeking the views of townsfolk on the bus services in and around 

A number of local bus services operated under contract to the authority are due for renewal in May 2015.

A council spokesperson said: “These are services which operate with financial support from the council in order to maintain vital public transport links for 
the community.

“The contract renewal exercise is already underway with a number of on-bus surveys being undertaken in order to identify the travel patterns of existing bus users and seek their views on the current levels of service provision.

“As part of the contract renewal process, we want to hear from the wider community to determine any unmet travel demands and identify requests for changes to the service level, timings or routes of the contracts in question.”

The services which have contracts up for renewal are the 30 and 30B Montrose – Brechin – Stracathro and/or Edzell daily service, the 115 and 116 Montrose – Inverkeilor/Farnell - Friockheim om Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 52 Links Health Centre – Glens – Borrowfield – Forties Road on Saturdays, the Ferryden - Montrose - Borrowfield - Hillside daily service and the 30 and 30A Montrose – Inverkeilor – Arbroath 
daily service.
