MSP Launches Consultation on McGill’s Service

Over 1,000 responses received in first 12 hours.

Renfrewshire North & West MSP Derek Mackay has launched a consultation survey on the McGill’s X23 and 23 service, which currently travels from Erskine to Glasgow, via Inchinnan and Renfrew.

At a public meeting in Renfrew this week McGIll’s confirmed they propose to make changes to the service, as they prepare to replace their current fleet of coaches with new ones.

Following the meeting, which between 350 and 400 people attended, Mr Mackay has launched a survey to receive feedback from users of the service.

Over 1,000 people have already responded to the survey, which is available online or in paper form by contacting Mr Mackay’s office.

Speaking Mr Mackay said:

“McGill’s have confirmed they are proposing to make changes to this service. However, unfortunately, the meeting this week did not result in any clear understanding on what their plans are or the proposals they intend to bring forward.

“In order to fully represent my constituent’s views on the potential proposals McGill’s have agreed to go away and draw up, I have launched by own consultation survey.

“If you use the service I would encourage you to complete the survey soon. Once I have the results I will send these to McGill’s and use it to lobby the company on behalf of locals.”
