£4.2m to improve bus standards

Bus services will be given a share of £4.2 million to help improve standards.

The funds will be split among 13 projects in ­Scotland over three years, Transport Minister Keith Brown said.

Projects include ­promoting bus information, enhancing a park-and-ride site and improving infrastructure. The grants were made under the first round of Transport Scotland's bus investment fund.

Mr Brown said: "I would like to congratulate all 13 applicants who have secured substantial funding.

"This fund provides local authorities, regional ­transport partnerships and bus operators with the opportunity to apply for grants, which will help to increase the standard of bus services and patronage."
