The service will be branded as the X36B and will run between Beith and Braehead.
People from Adrossan or Irvine can catch the X34 or X36 to connect with the X36B at Beith.
The service will run on Saturdays and Sundays between 25th November and 31st December 2017.
The shuttle service will depart from the Strand in Beith to intu Braehead on an hourly frequency on Saturdays and Sundays. The current X34 from Irvine to Glasgow via Beith and the X36 from Ardrossan to Glasgow via Beith which usually serve intu Braehead at weekends will operate directly to Glasgow City Centre and will be retimed to reflect this temporary change in route. Tom Bridge Managing Director Stagecoach West Scotland said “On 4th June 2017 journeys to intu Braehead were introduced on the X34 and X36 services. The option of travelling to intu Braehead has proved very successful and a popular choice for our customers. However over the Christmas period intu Braehead can become extremely congested with shoppers doing their Christmas shopping. We have therefore introduced this shuttle service from Beith to allow shoppers to choose between shopping in Glasgow City Centre or intu Braehead without suffering delays due to incremental Christmas traffic on the roads. "Our passengers can continue to travel to intu Braehead as normal on weekdays right throughout the Christmas period. We look forward to welcoming all passengers on board throughout November and December and beyond into 2018."
