South Lanarkshire Council is calling for an upgrade to the bus system across Lanarkshire after claims that it has been ‘broken’ for years.

At the full council meeting on Wednesday (November 1), councillor Joe Fagan (East Kilbride Central North) proposed plans to roll out a London-style bus system across Lanarkshire and the West of Scotland.

Councillor Fagan said that the current bus system is flawed and urged councillors to back his proposal to introduce a seamless new network.

He said: “The bus market in the West of Scotland is broken. It has been for years. It’s time to scrap the broken bus market and replace it with a system that is democratically controlled and accountable. Buses should be run for people, not for profit.
