Scottish coach companies to receive additional funding…

Up to £29m of additional funding has been made available by the Scottish government for its bus services.

The money will be used to cover between 18 January and 31 March and will follow the expiration date of the previous award of up to £52.6m.

Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson, said that says that the money ‘will enable operators to continue to maintain services’ and will ‘fill the gap between the additional costs of running services due to coronavirus COVID-19’.

The news comes five days after calls for the scheme to be continued until the end of the current financial year were made by leading industry voices.

Speaking to the Scottish Parliament’s COVID-19 committee, Alastair Wilson of Wilson’s of Rhu, said that the support had been ‘most welcome’ but the industry will need support as long as social distancing measures are in place.
