The free bus travel is for the whole of Scotland, not just Orkney, so really useful to have if you are visiting friends and relations or attending an event outwith Orkney.
The commitment to free travel, which is now in its second year, comes on the back of the launch of Stagecoach’s employee led Veteran’s Network.
In the summer of 1905 a large motor car arrived on the Steamer St Ninian. It was capable of carrying 16 people and was described as being ‘long-looked-for’.
Orkney Islands Council has launched a survey on the provision of flexible bus services in areas of the islands where buses are few or not found at all.

Workers in every Stagecoach division in Scotland have supported taking industrial action in a dispute over pay.
34 new buses will eventually be delivered which are low floored and conform to Euro 6 low emission standards.
