The Commonwealth Games opened yesterday and numerous bus operators have sent vehicles to help out on the transportation of those taking part and the movement of spectators.
Go North East, have provided a fleet of twenty vehicles together with a team of forty drivers to provide extra transport links across the city of Glasgow.
