West Coast Ferry Operator CalMac is introducing an Essential Lifeline Timetable from tomorrow (Friday 27 March) as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The new reduced timetable, which will run for an initial three-week period, comes amidst a lockdown on all but essential travel across the whole of the UK. It will be subject to continual review in a rapidly changing environment, but they believe it is sustainable with their current crews.
All islands will receive a regular lifeline service ensuring essential goods and services are delivered.
The new timetable can be viewed at www.calmac.co.uk
