Transport Minister Keith Brown today announced over £3 million worth of funding to be allocated to bus projects across Scotland over the next two years.
Tagsa Uibhist will receive more than £73,000 to extend and improve its dial-a-bus service.
Thirteen projects in total – including interchange hubs and community transport – will receive grants under the second round of Transport Scotland’s Bus Investment Fund (BIF).
The BIF encourages partnership working to help improve bus services, standards and infrastructure for communities across Scotland.
Transport Minister Keith Brown said:“I was delighted by the level of interest shown in this year’s Bus Investment Fund and would like to congratulate all the successful applicants who have secured substantial funding.“This fund supports community groups, authorities and operators across the country, helping to improve the standard of bus services, increasing patronage thereby achieving greater modal shift.
“The Scottish Government is committed to improving bus services in Scotland and that is why we have provided a further round of funding under the Bus Investment Fund.”
