Dumfries and Galloway Council

Question: I think that bus prices are quite high. Some of the buses have different prices for the same route! Is there anything you would change?

    The Council subsidises some routes in Dumfries and Galloway – those which the bus companies wouldn’t run otherwise – but others are purely commercial and can charge more less what they like, so different companies charge different fares. One of my colleagues in the Scottish Parliament wanted to introduce a bill to better regulate the bus services but his bill didn’t get enough support, but hopefully if are back in power after next year’s elections we can bring it in
