Stirling Bus Station has reopened today (20th July) with additional safety measures in place.
Stirling Council has been working in recent weeks to prepare the station, making a number of changes to ensure passengers are safe when waiting for their bus
The station, which has been closed to the public since the COVID-19 lockdown began in March, will again be open seven days a week.
The bus station will be open Monday to Saturday: 9am-5:30pm and Sunday: 10am-5pm.
A one-way system will be in place to help maintain physical distancing and face coverings must be worn when entering the building with hand sanitising stations available on entrance to the building.
Opening times of station facilities have also changed to allow for additional cleaning measures. The Cafe will reopen at a later date.
Convener of the Environment and Housing Committee, Councillor Jim Thomson, said: “Stirling Bus Station is a key facility for so many people living and working in the city who use public transport as part fo their every day lives.
“Our priority for the reopening has always been to ensure passengers can feel safe and confident when using the bus station and its facilities, and we are pleased that we can finally reopen its doors.”
Vice Convener, Councillor Danny Gibson, said: “We have put in place appropriate measures to assist with social distancing and will carry out additional cleaning so that passengers can feel reassured about potential health issues.
We would like to remind everyone that it is mandatory to wear face coverings when on public transport for the safety of all who use them.”
