111 Dumfries Town Centre to New Hospital route

  • Posted on : 29th November 2017

We have received a few concerns and enquiries regarding our new 111 service. So we would just like to clarify a few things;

– This morning Dumfries and Galloway Council have confirmed that the stagecoach tickets to be accepted on our 111 service are; card megariders, paper megariders and day riders. If anything changes we will be updating our website, facebook page and putting posters on our buses to update the public.

– The megariders etc can be used by any member of the public – not just staff at the hospital.

– The timetable has been issued by Dumfries and Galloway Council. We are running to the times that the council have given us. We are unable to change any of the times – if you feel this is an issue then you need to address this with Dumfries and Galloway Council.

– We have been working with our artwork designer to design A5 copies of the 111 timetable to give out to the public. These timetables will hopefully be with us by the end of this week.
