Fife Bus, Fife Council’s Demand Responsive Transport Service (DRT), provides door-to-door transport for people who are unable to access mainstream public transport.
Our minibuses have very low steps, or a passenger lift. This allows wheelchair users to travel with us too. Our friendly driving staff are on hand, to allow our passengers to board and alight. They will also assist with your seatbelt if needed.
Anyone who has difficulty in using mainstream public transport due some form of reduced mobility. Your reduced mobility may be physical, mental or a sensory impairment, and may be permanent or temporary.Back To Top

You can go anywhere you want, as long as it is within your permitted travel area. This is detailed in the Fifebus Service by Town publication.Back To Top
You can use the service for any transport you require, for example:
- shopping trips
- visiting relatives and friends
- going to work or to college
- going to the cinema or bingo
- visiting the park
We can also tell you which shopping centres have Shopmobility, who may be able to arrange a helper for you or provide you with a scooter, or a powered or manual wheelchair if needed.Back To Top
If you feel the support of a friend or family member would help, please bring them with you (just let us know when you book the bus). You can also bring your hearing or guide dog.Back To Top

Fife Bis is a Fife-wide service, available across Fife 8am to 5:30pm (Mon to Sun). Bookings are only taken the day before travel, with Friday and Saturday bookings taken on a Thursday and Sunday and Monday bookings taken on a Friday. You can see what days the service is running in your area by looking at Fifebus Service by Town.
As with other public transport services, it will no longer be a mandatory requirement for passengers to wear a face covering whilst travelling with us. We would, however, still strongly encourage their use at this time.
The Council will continue to review the Fifebus service in line with changing circumstances and any Government advice/measures and we will keep customers informed of any changes.
