Public Transport Information
The council is responsible for co-ordinating public transport services across West Lothian, although individual services are provided by private operators (ScotRail, First Edinburgh, etc.). In some cases, the council may contract a private firm to run a service which might not otherwise be commercially viable. It can also take up complaints on behalf of the public.
Public Transport Information is available from the Council's Information Service (CIS) offices and bus and train operators. Printed timetables for some council contract services are also available.
