A bus firm has announced extra stops and new routes in a 'shake-up' of its Glasgow services.

Scottish Citylink is starting a new timetable from next week which will affect the 902 service. 

For the first time, the route will serve Harthill Village, Uphall and Broxburn opening up access from these locations to Glasgow. 

As well as this, Citylink is adding new late evening and weekday journeys to several locations on the route, including a late journey from Glasgow to Livingston at 23:20, services from Livingston to Coatbridge and Glasgow at 22:32 and a 00:32 service from Livingston to Coatbridge. 

Another weekday journey from Chapelhall to Glasgow at 08:41 will ensure travellers will arrive in the city before 9.30am. 

As well as these additions, all journeys will depart Glasgow five minutes earlier, at 20 past the hour.

These changes come into effect from Monday, December 4. 

Citylink has also confirmed that it will take over the running of number 23 service between Springhill and Whitburn.

Operating from Monday to Saturday, this route provides connections for customers to join the 902 Service at Harthill Village or link with Service 900 or AIR services at Harthill Services.

Scottish Citylink managing director Simone Smith said: “This is great news for customers travelling between Glasgow, Livingston and Edinburgh Airport who now have more services and extra stops to choose from.

“We hope these changes will be of particular benefit to passengers in Harthill Village, Uphall and Broxburn who now have access to key transport hubs and shopping destinations in the lead-up to the festive season in particular.

“And we’re pleased to be taking over the running of Service 23 which provides important local links and connects not only to the 902 route but also to our Service 900 between Edinburgh and Glasgow and our AIR service between Glasgow and Edinburgh Airport.”
