Falkirk Council’s Transport Planning Unit has received a number of requests to review the route of Service 59 between Letham and Falkirk. Some passengers have expressed concern about the journey time and reliability of the current route, which operates via The Inches/Kinnaird and Forth Valley Royal Hospital. All subsidised bus services are due to be retendered in 2016 and as part of this process, Falkirk Council will be considering a number of options for the future of Service 59.
Falkirk Council is now consulting with local residents to help them to provide the most appropriate service for residents of The Inches and Kinnaird Village if Service 59 is diverted to operate via a more direct route.
In order to assist with this consultation process a questionnaire has been designed to gather comments from local residents. The questionnaire can be accessed by clicking here: The Inches Questionnaire.
Please return this form to Falkirk Council, Development Services, Abbotsford House, Davids Loan, Falkirk, FK2 7YZ or email a scanned copy to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please also remember that we have a special meeting of the Community Council on Tuesday 26th January at 7pm in the halls of Larbert Old to discuss Falkirk Council’s budget saving proposals. We have invited Mary Pitcaithly the Chief Executive of Falkirk Council to attend the meeting to provide an overview of the savings and to answer questions. All are welcome to attend.
With effect from tomorrow, First Group are putting in place a new timetable and route for the No 59 Bus.
The overall route runs from Callander – Stirling – Falkirk. Locally it runs via Carron Dams, Muirhall Road, Burns Avenue in the Inches and Forth Valley Royal Hospital. Please note that the route no longer includes Falkirk Community Hospital.
