You will need to show your free Communities Fun Day ticket, to access the bus which will be running from Ayr Bus Station and the Communities Fun Day Free Park and Ride Station available at Ayr Beach Park (located at Blackburn Drive).  The first bus will leave Ayr Bus Station at 10:15am.

Representatives from Stagecoach will be on hand to chat with members of the community on the day, Stagecoach is also bringing along a vintage bus and an electric bus to the vehicle display area at the fun day.

Tenants, staff, and Councillors recently tested the bus service ahead of the event.
