Subsidised bus services

There are a number of local bus services in Fife operated by a few bus companies. But did you know that Fife Council subsidises over 50 of these local bus services? We fund whole routes, or evening and weekend services, that aren’t commercially viable for the bus operators.

We do this so that communities aren’t cut off and people can use public transport to get to work, shops, visit families and attend hospital/doctors when they need to.

See below for a list of all the bus services the council subsidises and some maps showing commercial Vs subsidised Sunday and evening services around the larger towns.

It costs us £3.8million to keep these buses running for 2.3m passenger journeys across Fife each year.
