For those of my constituents who are over 60 and live in East Dunbartonshire I’d like to encourage you to make use of the handy bus service provided by East Dunbartonshire Community Transport.

I understand that all minibuses are fully accessible and can collect you from your own home (Carers can go along too), ideal if you are finding it difficult to use public transport.

Bus services run on a Tuesday and Thursday to local supermarkets – costing £5 for a return trip.

On a Friday, there are trips to shopping centres and towns further away.

Over-60s shopping trips run:
· Every Tuesday – from your door to Tesco, Waitrose or Dobbies Garden Centre, Milngavie (£5)

· Every Thursday – from your door to ASDA Robroyston.

There are also a series of Friday trips to the likes of Alexandria with a stop at Luss, Braehead/IKEA, Sterling Mills in Tillicoutry,
Silverburn Shopping Centre and Glasgow Christmas Market.
