The following GCT services are now operating again:

- Member hires (restrictions apply)

- GK2 Wednesday Evening Service Glenkens to Castle Douglas (Tesco)

- Tuesday Newton Stewart service

- Alternative month Ayr and Carlisle services

- 517/505 Kirkcudbright/Borgue/Dundrennan weekday service

As of 12 August our schools services are back in operation


With the recent easing of COVID19 related restrictions GCT is planning, starting in September, to run some of the excursions that had been planned for 2020 but put on hold due to the pandemic.

The COVID19 situation can change suddenly and unpredictably, so all excursions are arranged with the explicit proviso that they are subject to the Scottish Government guidance in force at the time of the excursion.

Services still temporarily suspended

The following GCT services are still suspended but we aim to restore them as soon as Scottish Government COVID-19 guidance allows:

- Thursday Castle Douglas (Golden Day Club) service

- MiDAS training



Galloway Community Transport provides a range of transport services throughout the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright and surrounding areas including regular services to Castle Douglas, Dumfries, Newton Stewart, Ayr and Carlisle, excursions to places of interest and vehicle hire to members (with or without a driver).

We also offer Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme (MiDAS) training courses and training for D1 by test for new GCT drivers and for GCT member organisations' drivers.

Book trips online

GCT excursions and monthly services can be booked online on the booking page of the CatStrand website.
