Projected overspend for public transport services

The cost of providing public transport services is projected to be £225,000 more than it should be, members of Shetland’s transport partnership have been told.

SIC finance manager Jamie Manson delivered news of the overspend during a ZetTrans meeting on Friday morning.

This year’s management accounts show a projected outturn for the period in the three month period up until September.

It follows restrictions brought in as a result of the coronavirus, and advice urging against the use of public transport.

It means ZetTrans will require a contribution from Shetland Islands Council to help balance the books.
