New bus services for the Borders

A REVISED package of bus services around the Eildons includes a shopping service to and from Hawick.

Scottish Borders Council’s SB Buses have launched the new Eildon Explorer bus in a bid to replace Munro’s service 64 and well-used journeys around the Eildon area – which include Hawick on a Wednesday.

The route for service 915 goes from Newtown, Lilliesleaf, Midlem and Selkirk to Hawick in the morning, and makes the return journey from Mart Street in the afternoon.

The bus has a wheelchair lift and 15 seats. Timetables are now available.
