The current cost of the Swimming Pool run is £80 per day.  Due to an oversight this did not gone out to tender for the last school year but the Department will seek to address the situation going forward.


“Also can you tell me the number of seats that are Required on 14.50 Castlebay to Eoligarry school runs.”

The contract specification for the route 14:50 Castlebay to Eoligarry is 29 seats.
