Transport Minister Derek MacKay recently announced significant changes to services for next summer – including a daily Lochboisdale-Mallaig service – with a consultation period starting from the date of the announcement (22nd September).
Over the past month CalMac says it has been speaking with the communities it serves to get feedback on the proposals.
“We have received many favourable comments about the proposed timetable and have taken on board suggested tweaks that local people have told us would improve the service even further,” said CalMac’s operations director Drew Collier.
“There is still time to comment though if people have specific issues that they would like us to consider.”
People across the Clyde and Hebrides ferry network can comment on the proposed timetable by contacting their local ferry committee through their community council.
Once the amended timetable is agreed with Transport Scotland, CalMac will bring the timetable back to ferry committees before finalising.
