Stagecoach is offering you the chance to take part in a two week trial hovercraft service between Kirkcaldy and Portobello!
Services will operate hourly, with crossing times of an impressive 20 minutes. Connecting shuttle services are available at Portobello for travel to Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh and Ocean Terminal, Leith.
In order to make the trip as easy as possible, Stagecoach services 6, 6A, 7, X59 and X60 serve the terminal point in Kirkcaldy.
The hi-tech 130 passenger craft offers an alternative to the traffic congestion of the Forth Road Bridge without disrupting the local ecosystems. If the trial proves successful, it may be introduced as a permanent method of sustainable transport between Fife and Edinburgh.
This trial is part funded by SEStran, South East of Scotland Transport Partnership.
