MCGILL’S have cancelled all Inverclyde bus services for the rest of today due to the snow.

Heavy snowfall has caused major disruption to the public transport network across the country.

All McGill’s buses have been off since Wednesday afternoon and remained suspended on Thursday morning.

But with conditions worsening, officials have made the decision to halt services for the remainder of the day with a review to take place early on Friday morning.

A McGill’s spokesperson said: “Unfortunately roads are still unsafe and with the upgraded weather warning ALL McGill’s services will remain suspended for the day.
“Our team will be working hard to assess from early tomorrow morning.”

Meanwhile, ScotRail had hoped to run a reduced hourly service from Gourock to Paisley Gilmour Street at eight minutes past the hour this afternoon but all trains in Inverclyde remain off due to the weather.

On the water, Western Ferries is operating a limited service between McInroy's Point and Hunters Quay.

Argyll Ferries' sailings between Gourock and Dunoon town centres remains off as does Clydelink's Gourock-Kilcreggan ferry.

There has also been disruption to CalMac's Wemyss Bay to Rothesay service.

Officials are attempting to run a 2pm sailing from Rothesay and one at 3pm from Wemyss Bay but both are weather dependent and may be cancelled.

If they do go ahead they will be the last services of the day.

The CalMac offices at either side of the Clyde will close at 4pm to allow staff to get home safely.
