River Link's first thousand passengers

New river bus on the Clyde

30 Jun 2010

The new river bus service on the Clyde has proved a hit, with over 1000 passengers during its first month of operation.

Launched on 26th May, River Link provides a regular, timetabled service up and down the river between the Broomielaw in the City Centre, the Science Centre at Pacific Quay and Braehead.

The service, which runs from Wednesday to Sunday each week, provides a different way of travelling about the city, making use of the river.

Clyde Waterfront and Glasgow City Council are supporting this new inititative by Clyde Cruises, encouraging the development of the river as a transport artery as well as an ideal place to spend leisure time.

New pontoons along the river have made it much easier for this kind of activity to take place.

Clyde Cruises is also offering sightseeing trips down the river, an ideal way to see the regeneration that is taking place and hear about the history of shipbuilding and commerce on the Clyde.
