After consultation with users there will be a revised timetable for the 302 service between Carrick Castle and Helensburgh via Lochgoilhead. This will come into force from Monday 4 June 2012.

The new timetable will mean there is an extra journey leaving from Arrochar at 0756 for Carrick Castle. This service will also call at Arrochar and Tarbet Station if you have put in a request to the operator, Garelochhead Coaches, at least the night before you are due to travel.

In the evening, the 1810 journey from Helensburgh will now leave 45 minutes earlier at 1725 and the last stop will be at Corrow near Drimsynie. There will no longer be the opportunity to ask for an extension to Carrick Castle on this journey. However there will be an extra journey from Corrow to Arrochar at 1825 where it will be possible to pick up onward connections by Citylink Coaches and ScotRail.

Lead Councillor for Energy, Development, Infrastructure and Tourism, Councillor John Semple, said “It’s unfortunate there are changes in the service however there were some difficult decisions to make on how to make savings on public transport in Argyll and Bute. I’d encourage people to look at the council’s website to make a note of the changes.”


The 302 service is jointly funded by Argyll and Bute Council and Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and operated on their behalf by Garelochhead Coaches.
