First still on the non SPT journeys ?

No service to EK at MO , so will that start on the 12th of July 2020?
I wouldn’t be shocked if SPT don’t replace it, I believe they have canned other routes With no replacement as of July. 68 being one.

hints on other pages that the SPT elements of the 31,M3,209,226,227,228 Are being done away with

Well I’ve done various routes over the years SPT runs and it was normal fare and there was nothing different on the ticket machine or fare sheet. Single fares, all day tickets and FirstWeek remained normal.
Interesting , wonder why the SPT 31 had higher fares.

I'm pretty sure the 46 was different compared to normal fares too. Not sure about now though as that was a few years back my friend used it and mentioned a difference. Just another way to put people off public transport I guess

If the SPT cuts have to be as bad as they're warning then it'll be interesting to see what's actually left for them. Could see a lot of areas losing most if not all of their bus services

The SPT shortfall is coming at the worst possible time. Can see various operators (big and small) trimming their weaker routes over the next 6 months or so with evening and Sunday services probably most at risk of disappearing. Just when we need SPT to step in, it looks like their sporran is going to be empty.

I wasn't thinking companies would cut too much at first but now I can imagine that any route that wasn't doing great before the pandemic could be extremely under threat. Unless the government step in then it's pretty certain that it'll result in more car use

Did think they'd be the ones to take them tbh. Was always the most likely possibility

Not sure if these are temporary services due the current situation but shuttle buses are taking over the 94 and 124 services in Glasgow

As far as Craig's of Cumbernauld go I could only find that they run 5 services in total and all are SPT tenders

335-Cumbernauld Town Centre then Seafar, Carrickstone, Craigmarloch, Balloch, Craiglinn interchange, Seafar then Town Centre again
343-North Carbrain circle to Cumbernauld
343A- Seafar Circle to Cumbernauld
346- Cumbernauld Station to Wardpark
381- Kilsyth to Twechar

Not even a website for them or anything

According to the SPT timetable section these are currently operated by WCM on a COVID-19 timetable.

Also M4 Anniesland – Partick Bus Station whilst First Glasgow isn't running it along with the M93 MyBus which is currently suspended. They keep themselves busy, that's for sure.

They took on the majority of the contracts temporarily given up by First Glasgow as they have buses lying around doing nothing for the time being, they took on more MyBus work last year and again, that is currently suspended.

Whatever they get paid for it will cover the costs otherwise they wouldn't have gone for them.

Will First be taking up their contracts again? They’ve always blown hot and cold about tenders. Going back to the early 2000s they hardly had any – either not interested or bidding too high.

If SPT really are in deep trouble money-wise, I hope they have a good look at what they are currently supporting. Always get the feeling that a lot of routes don’t change because of pressure from councillors.

Can see a lot of areas being cut off quite a bit in terms of bus options if SPT start cutting services out.

As for First I think the 11 is a good one to take as it fits in with the M11 anyway for most of the route and the 71A partly fits in with the 89A for part of the route. Don't expect them to take anything else new on though

Interesting one but I did think we would see some unexpected moves given the need to get some money in for everyone
