What’s Happening in Dunbar

It’s really encouraging that so many local people in rural East Lothian have shown an interest in being a part of RELBUS. We now have 25 members.

Some major changes are planned for public transport in East Lothian which involve cutting some services and introducing new services but at the moment overall picture is not clear. We are trying to collect information from different sources. We know:

  • First bus is cutting X8 service
  • X6 will not serve Hallhill any more
  • Eve’s Coaches are planning to launch new buses
  • It is not yet clear whether the Gabalanzie and A1 services will stop or be modified
  • Sestran is (still) planning to introduce Real Time Bus Information at East Lothian

East Lothian Council have defined their supported services and put these out to tender. These returns will be assessed and discussed with East Lothian Council’s administration.

Changes to First’s buses from 10th January

First SouthEast have confirmed that from 10 January 2010 they will be making extensive changes to their bus services around Dunbar including-

  • The current service X8 will be renumbered as X44 but will terminate at Haddington and will no longer serve Dunbar
  • The current service X6 will be renumbered as X45 and will no longer serve the Hallhill area
