Today, First Bus have announced plans to continue providing the 3 supported services in West Edinburgh – the 20, 63 and 68.
The 68 (Turnhouse, Clermiston, Corstorphine) will continue unchanged.
The 20 (Ratho to Chesser via Gyle) and the 63 (Queensferry to Balerno via Gyle) will continue on reduced timetables.
It is good news that the services will not end in September as we feared, but the reduced timetable will be devastating to many in communities to the west of the city. It is disappointing to see this service cut down.
Over 2000 people across these communities signed our petitions to preserve these local lifeline buses, and the Lib Dem team and I will continue pushing to keep up these local lifeline services.
Thank you to you all for joining our campaign, signing and sharing our petition.
