Ferintosh Community Bus
Residents in the FCC area have been poorly served by public transport for many years and indeed have lost bus services in the past. The current limited bus services are found to be useful only by a very small number of the FCC's residents.
FCC has been exploring better options for a number of years and one interesting and innovative pilot is now underway with FCC as a member of a partnership involving HITRANS, The Highland Council, Stagecoach and CSI Ross-shire.
The key test for this pilot is whether, by running a small electric vehicle flexibly to collect and return residents to and from their houses, more residents will now find that this is a more useful public service.
The leaflet below explains the full scope of this new flexible service.
