Stagecoach are introducing a reduced service across the West of Scotland starting from Monday 23 March.

A Sunday service will run until further notice, to ensure that critical routes can be maintained at the peak of the coronavirus epidemic. Many routes will start earlier than they would on a Sunday to allow key workers to get to their jobs, however there will be a reduced service during the day.

This includes the 585 service from Ayr to Greenock, affecting Seamill, West Kilbride, Fairlie, Largs, Skelmorlie and Wemyss Bay. The first service of the day will stop in Seamill at 9:02am, with the last service terminating in Largs at 7:28pm. Full details can be found on the Stagecoach website at

Fiona Doherty, Managing Director for Stagecoach West Scotland said: "The safety of our customers and our employees is at the heart of everything we do. “We also know that our bus services play a vital role in keeping the country running and ensuring key sector personnel get to work.

“Following the latest government advice, we have reviewed our timetables and made temporary changes which reflect the reduced level of travel. “Our objective has been to focus resources on where we know they are needed most at this time.

“We are working hard to best maintain essential services, safeguard jobs and ensure the long-term sustainability of a sector which is central to our economy and communities.
