Where possible bookings should be made 24 hours in advance, however DRT suppliers may be flexible if this is not possible. DRT operate between  0700 & 2130 hours 7 days a week. During these hours you can book a DRT taxi or bus to take you anywhere within the designated boundaries for the cost of a normal bus ticket.

Trossachs Trundler 2010

The Trossachs Trundler summer bus service has been withdrawn due to lack of demand and has been replaced by a Demand Responsive Transport (DRT) service, which offers a taxi-type service at a bus fare. You can find an explanation of DRT HERE.

Briefly, this substitute for the Trossachs Trundler route and also a wider area works a bit like a taxi service but at public transport rates. It is operated in Tthe Trossachs area by Aberfoyle Coaches.

If the Trossachs Trundler service is re-introduced it will be announced on this page.
