Views sought on Levenmouth bus services ahead of rail link's return


Fife Council is eager to hear people’s views on bus services across Levenmouth as the return of rail services to the area looms large on the horizon.

Thanks to the £116m Levenmouth Rail Link project, passenger trains will be running for the first time in more than five decades – with services due to start pulling into new stations at Leven and Cameron Bridge in Spring 2024.

However, having a bus network that not only meets the needs of local people and visitors alike but also maximises the opportunities provided by the rail link’s return will be hugely important going forward.

That’s why we want to hear your opinions on buses in Levenmouth just now, and how the network can be improved to support the reopening of the Levenmouth Rail Link and ensure communities are better connected than they’ve ever been.

A new survey has been launched today giving people the chance to have their say, and it will remain open until midnight on June 25.

Councillor Altany Craik, Fife Council spokesperson for finance, economy and strategic planning, commented: “The impact of the rail link’s reinstatement will be significant, both when the railway opens and longer-term as people make choices on where to live and work due to the new connections afforded by the railway.

“People’s travel patterns will no doubt change as a result, but it’s clear the need for a bus network that connects communities and complements the new rail stations has never been greater.”

The survey will encourage bus users to think about the places and facilities they go to, satisfaction with existing bus services, and connectivity to other buses and the new stations when they open.

People can participate by scanning a QR code on their phone, or by visiting on their preferred device.


Staff will also be at Leven Bus Station over the coming weeks to help people record their views, with hard copies of the survey available there for anyone who needs one.
