First Glasgow, the city’s biggest bus operator, has announced its bus fleet is now made up entirely of low floor buses.

The company’s 900-plus strong fleet is now made up entirely of low-floor accessible vehicles, making using services easier for customers travelling with children in a buggy, or for those with mobility issues.

Ronnie Park, First Glasgow’s MD, said: “We are delighted to be in a position to make bus travel easier for customers travelling with young children and others who benefit from low step easy access.”

With over 100 services in the Greater Glasgow bus network, First Glasgow operates numerous express services to the city centre from surrounding areas.

The firm did however state: “While all reasonable endeavours will be made to operate this type of vehicle there may be occasions due to operational reasons that First Glasgow may have to utilise step entrance vehicles.”
