We’re progressing plans to transform Scotland’s railway, bringing more seats and faster journeys from this September.

Replacement bus services to/from West Calder

A road closure at West Calder station means that during disruption, the replacement bus service will be a mini bus shuttle between West Calder and Livingston South until May 2017. Mini buses will pick up and drop off from the bus stops in front of the Scotmid Co-operative food store on Main Street, about a ten minute walk from the station.

Directions: From West Calder station, walk up Station Road and bear right onto the main road past the police station. Walk along the main road until you come to the Central Inn pub – mini buses will pick up from the bus stop on the opposite side of the road, in front of the Scotmid. The shuttle service will meet up with the main replacement buses at Livingston South.

Travel advice

  • If your journey includes replacement bus, please allow more time to reach your destination
  • Check your journey. Bus departure times may not match normal train times. Please use the ScotRail app or website to plan your travel
