Bus passengers are up in arms about changes to vital bus services in the Linlithgow area.
Routes earmarked for change are the L1 and L31/32.
West Lothian Council needs to find £1.5 million of savings in 2016/17 and funds for public transport are being trimmed.
However, the new timetables which will see the L1 bus reduced to a hourly service between 9.30am and 3pm has left passengers feeling stranded.
Pamela Barnes, from Linlithgow, who is a regular user of the bus, said: “It will effect people from all walks of life. School children, parents, the elderly, everyone will suffer because of this change.”
The L31/32 service from Livingston to Bathgate via the town will operate from 6.44am to 23.14pm on an hourly basis, passing the leisure centre on the Bathgate to Linlithgow route.
A West Lothian Council spokesman said: “The council has prioritised £8.2 million in 2016/17 to support public transport, in addition, through good house-keeping the council has allocated a further £500,000 next year for public transport to mitigate the impact of the savings.
“However, because of Scottish Government funding, £1.5 million of savings are needed in 2016/17.”
The new timetables will begin on April 1 across West Lothian.
