Scheduled services will not run unless there are prior bookings. The current booking status of scheduled services, and the number of seats available on them, are shown below. While we will run the scheduled services for one passenger, it would be appreciated if individual passengers would book on services which are already operating where their travel does not need to be on a specific day, or book as far in advance as possible to allow other individual passengers to book on the same service.  It will not be viable for us to continue offering the service long term without increasing fares if we are frequently running it for one passenger. Services will not operate if there is road snow, and may be delayed or cancelled.
