There are good and bad things about visiting a town the size of St Andrews.  Benefits include the close proximity of local buildings, shops and attractions, which means that walking to most places is usually easy.  The downfall is that public transportation servicing this town is not the best.  Although there aren’t any options for getting around within St. Andrews via public transportation, getting around the Kingdom of Fife is possible.

            The main public transportation options for getting around the Kingdom of Fife include buses and trains. 

The major bus company servicing Fife is the Stagecoach.  The 95-bus services the town of St Andrews and has numerous routes throughout Fife.  The coaches are comfortable, convenient, and generally an inexpensive way to travel the area.  Check out the information about Using the Bus System before heading to St Andrews.  Detailed information about timetables, fares and routes is available by calling the Traveline at (0870 608 2 608 ). 

            Traveling through Fife by train is another option; however it is not very convenient.  Routes are fairly limited and must be combined with bus services to reach many areas.  The train company operating in Fife is called the ScotRail .  The trains are more comfortable than buses, but tend to be more expensive as well.
