🟢🚌 Route 18 detour & service change 🚌🟢

Valid from Monday, Dec 20, 2021 3:19 PM

ROUTE BACK TO NORMAL FRIDAY 21ST JANUARY
From Friday morning, route 18 will be back to following the normal route & timetable. There is likely to be delays of up to 15 minutes with stop/go traffic management.
Thanks for your patience with this :)
From Monday 17th Jan - Thursday 20th Jan, Portobello Rd will be closed between Marne St and Company Bay.
Route 18 will need to detour from Company Bay - along Castlewood Rd and Highcliff Rd, coming out at Marne St, for the duration of the works, and will operate a modified timetable.
The first/last stop serviced along the normal route is Portobello Rd, Luss Rd (Company Bay) - in both directions. Macandrew Bay is unable to be serviced during the closure hours.
Because of the nature of this diversion, route 18 will be running smaller vehicles for this time. These vehicles are unfortunately not accessible for wheelchairs and do not have bike racks, but can facilitate prams onboard.

The road is closed from 9am -5pm, outside of these times the road is open and routes operating as normal.

 

In the morning, the last services operating to their normal timetable/route are:

0808 from Hub - likely to be running in a smaller van but on normal route.

0827 from Portobello - likely to be running in a smaller van but on normal route.

In the afternoon first services on normal timetable/route are:

1639 from Hub to Portobello will run later at 1650 on the normal route.

1657 from Portobello to Hub will run on time on normal route.

During the closure hours, we will operate small vans on route 18, on the following timetable:

IMPORTANT TO NOTE:

  • Services outside of these hours, and that mentioned above will operate as normal, normal route and timings
  • The detour won’t appear in the Transit app, but there will be a service alert on there.
  • These smaller buses won’t appear in Transit because these aren’t equipped with our tracking devices unfortunately.
Please plan your trip accordingly for this in advance. Apologies for the inconvenience.
