Areas in Stirlingshire where there are no regular bus routes are serviced by Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) which operates like a taxi and costs around the same as bus fare. DRT is available to anyone wishing to travel in rural Stirlingshire. The service requires pre-booking.

Charges for the service as similar to the cost of a bus fare, based on the distance you travel.

Concessionary cards, such as Scottish National Entitlement Cards (bus) are accepted and must be shown to the driver. National Entitlement Card holders receive free travel.

The most flexible way to book DRT is to do this online. This will let you do the following:

  • Book from 30 days in advance and up to 2 hours before your required journey (subject to availability – the more notice you can give for your journey the more likely your requirements can be accommodated. DRT operators may also have less availability at peak hours such as school drop off and collection times).
  • Manage your journeys 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • Reschedule or cancel bookings easily.
  • Receive email notifications.

You can also make phone bookings from Monday to Friday (9am to 3pm) on 01786 404040.
