2. The modified public service obligations are as follows:

- Minimum frequencies:

- to Foula from Tingwall - two return trips on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and one return trip on Tuesday (summer service). Two return trips on Friday and one return trip on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday (winter service),

The price of a single adult ticket must not exceed GBP 21,30 (Foula), GBP 37,20 (Fair Isle), GBP 18,00 (Out Skerries) and GBP 16,00 (Papa Stour).
