Which routes will offer free bus travel in Inverness next week?
A week of free bus travel is being offered across the Inverness area from Monday.
Instead of paying, passengers will be able to hop on board buses on the Inverness Electric City Bus Network (services 1 to 9) for free.
It is being made available in a link-up between Stagecoach and Highland Council.
The free travel, which runs until Sunday November 26, covers a range of routes in the Inverness, Nairn, Beauly and Dingwall areas:
Passengers who have a free U22, 60-plus or disabled concessionary bus pass should use their pass as normal to travel.
Chairman of Highland Council’s economy and infrastructure committee, Councillor Ken Gowans, said the rollout of the new buses was putting Inverness on the map as the first city in Scotland towards having a fully electric bus network.
He added the project would help residents and visitors experience journeys on the buses with the aim of bringing more people in to the city centre by a sustainable travel mode.
The initiative is being supported through Smarter Choices, Smarter Places (SCSP) funding, which is aimed at encouraging more people to reduce their car use in favour of more sustainable alternatives such as walking, cycling and public transport.
