BUS DRIVERS in Ayr have been given kind messages of support.

Stagecoach West drivers have been cheered up along the 43A route to Annbank with bus stops decorated in colourful rainbows and messages of thanks.

Ayr Advertiser:

Operations Manager from Ayr Depot Kenny Monaghan said, “We’re proud to serve our local communities during these times.

Ayr Advertiser:

"The kindness shown to our drivers hasn’t gone unnoticed, for example the bus stops in Annbank being decorated gives our drivers a wee boost when they’re on their routes.”


Scotland is in lockdown. Shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We're not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Ayr Advertiser, and the vital local news service we've provided since 1803, is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Ayr Advertiser in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you're shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks – and stay safe.
