Transport priorities in Lanarkshire need to be reviewed as controversy continues on changes to rail services from Lanark station and while road travellers into Glasgow face disruption due to roadworks at the Raith interchange on the M74.
A grant of £261,600 from Scottish Government's Green Bus II fund towards the purchase of low emission hybrid buses for use on the 100 series Edinburgh to Dumfries/Moffat/Annan services has been lost because of delays in the tendering process for the route.
Campaign group Stand Up for Our Buses is widening its attention from its original focus on the future 100/1/2/3 Edinburgh to Dumfries/Annan/Moffat services after sudden changes to the pricing, routes and timetables on other routes in and around Clydesdale.
Green campaigner, Janet Moxley, who organised the Stand Up for Our Buses campaign against cuts to the 100, 101, 102 and 103 services which run from Edinburgh through Biggar to Dumfries, Moffat and Annan was delighted with attendance at a public meeting held at Biggar Corn Exchange on Monday 2nd July in support of the services .
Green Party Activist, Janet Moxley, is standing up against possible cuts to the 100/1/2/3 services from Edinburgh through Biggar and Clydesdale to Dumfries, Annan and Moffat.
Clydesdale needs a high quality public transport network not just for local people to use, but also to allow people to visit and enjoy the area.
