Glenfarg Community Bus

Glenfarg Community Bus…

The original purpose of Glenfarg Community Transport Group was to raise funds to acquire a Community Bus that the village could use to promote social and recreational activities. Following successful fundraising the Group now owns two minibuses – a 16-seat Ford Transit GF55BUS and a 9-seat Mercedes Vito FG55BUS. These two buses sport an eye-catching livery that reflects Glenfarg’s location in the rolling Ochil Hills.

A team of around 15 enthusiastic volunteer drivers take villagers to a wide range of destinations for various purposes.

Glenfarg Community Transport Outings…
We organise a number of outings every month and individuals are welcome to book onto these outings. We have been to IKEA, Livingston Shopping Malls; Japanese Garden; Garden Centres; Perth Concert Hall. Suggestions for future outings are welcome and you can book by completing the booking form below. Suggested donation for the trip is given

Local Group Outings…
Local groups based in Glenfarg area are welcome make group bookings for outings for any number of reasons. For example, the Knit Club have attended a number of exhibitions at the V&A and Textile Museum; the Scouts use the bus for various adventures; the Curling club booked it for a golf outing ??; A group outing is planned to the Burrell Collection and some old rockers went to see Pink Floyd (tribute band) at the Back Stage at the Green.The cost is calculated for the whole bus and depends on whether the group has its own MiDAS trained driver (we can help with MiDAS traing see FAQ). Complete the booking form…

Private Hire…
We have some availability for small private hires for 8-15 people. Small weddings or parties, Christmas dinners, airport transfers. This is not our core business but if we are available to help, we will do our best. This is restricted to residents of Glenfarg only. If we have additional volunteers for this work, we could do more (see driver training FAQ). Pricing is by individual quotation.

GCTG is a SCIO (Scottish Charity) and we need trustees. Trustees are the volunteers who lead charities and decide how they are run. You may have heard them called board members or the board. Trusteeship is a great way of contributing to GCTG - and you can develop your own strategic and leadership skills at the same time. You must be a user of GCTG services. Contact us at

In 2023/24 Glenfarg Community Transport Group has partnered with PAS to develop an Accessible and Sustainable Transport Plan.
