Stagecoach Strathtay has announced that bus fares in Angus are to rise by an average of under three per cent from Sunday, April 5, reflecting rising costs and reduced public sector investment in buses.

The increase follows an annual review and is broadly in line with increasing staff costs resulting from growth in the economy. Stagecoach point out that money from fares is used to invest in more modern, greener vehicles, technology and enhanced services. The company is investing £80 million in new vehicles for its bus and coach operations.
