A WEEKEND night bus service is returning to East Renfrewshire following recent rail disruption.

From tomorrow, First Glasgow will be providing its number 38 service - which runs from city's Sauchiehall Street to Giffnock, Newton Mearns and Crookfur - in the early hours of Saturday and Sunday mornings.

It is one of 11 routes that will be covering travel from the city centre across Glasgow and the surrounding areas to help boost the night-time economy.

Standard single journey tickets for City or Local journeys will be available from £2.65, while the 6pm PLUS ticket covers travel on First Glasgow's regular network of buses after 6pm, as well as journeys home in early hours. Priced from £4, the 6pm PLUS ticket is available on the First Bus app and on bus.

The Young Persons Concessionary Travel Card is also valid on First Glasgow's night bus services, meaning all under-22s with a valid card can travel free of charge.

Graeme Macfarlan, commercial director for First Bus Scotland, said: "We are absolutely delighted to announce the return of First Glasgow's night bus network, supporting the city's night-time economy while also helping people get home safely at the weekend.

"We are aware the challenges people have experienced in getting home from a night out, an event or indeed after a nightshift in the city centre in the early hours of the morning and hope the return of our night bus network will allow more people to enjoy all that Glasgow has to offer."
