COMMUTERS between Edinburgh and Glasgow will get more than a coach trip to work from this month as Scotmid and Citylink play their part in improving Scotland&#039s health.
Scotmid has joined forces with the coach operator to provide passengers on Citylink&#039s busiest route with free fruit and healthy snacks.
The project is being piloted on a three-month basis and if successful could be made permanent. It will trial on Edinburgh to Glasgow and Glasgow to Edinburgh Monday morning services, which carry over 20,000 customers a week
Colin Bird, Chief Executive, Scotmid, said: "We are committed to supporting initiatives in our communities which promote a healthy lifestyle. This project will ensure that Citylink passengers start their day the right way with something nutritious and filling."
Ross Kerr is project leader of the `Wise Food Initiative` which is encouraging convenience retailers to enhance their `Healthy Living` offerings to consumer and is jointly sponsored by convenience retailers and the Scottish Executive.
He said: `Scotmid is one of the partners in the Healthy Living project and this promotion of giving away healthy foods with Citylink is a great example of how Scotmid are investing to help encourage people to think `healthier` and develop the healthy option habit each day.`
