MSP Gil Paterson says a shuttle bus will replace services through Old Kilpatrick and Bowling that are to be temporary cancelled.
For a fortnight in February, works on a rail bridge on Roman Road will cause all main services — 1/A/B/E — to bypass the villages.
However, after discussions with transport authorities since October, Mr Paterson today (January 29) welcomed that there will now put on a shuttle bus.
It followed a period of uncertainty whereby authorities said there would be no service to connect the towns to the major bus lines.
Mr Paterson, MSP for Clydebank and Milngavie, said: “On behalf of my constituents, I have been facilitating communication and pressing for a solution on this matter since it came to my attention.
“As such, I am very pleased we have got to a positive outcome whereby bus services will resume, albeit in a different manner, during the works to the rail bridge at Roman Road.
“Public bodies can take a lot of stick for seeming to not engage with members of the public on important localised matters, so I praise all the parties involved for coming together to get something done.
“The replacement shuttle bus to connect Old Kilpatrick and Bowling to regular bus lines is a necessary measure – especially for the elderly, infirm and vulnerable – so I am delighted we now have a solution.”
