Traffic news

Taxis

There are a number of taxi companies in the National Park:

Demand Responsive Transport (DRT)

Demand Responsive Transport (“Taxi” Service) for areas covered and booking details is organised by Stirling Council in rural areas where commercial or conventional bus operators are unable to provide bus services.

  • You can use this service at the cost of a bus fare rather than a taxi fare.
  • Bookings should be made 24 hours in advance, although every effort will be made to accommodate passengers making bookings on shorter notice.
  • A pick-up point and time are agreed when you pre-book and the journey may be shared with other passengers with similar requests.
  • National Entitlement Cards (Bus Passes) are accepted.

The journey can either connect with existing public transport or simply be to another destination within the DRT area.
