As a result of the reduction in Aberdeenshire Council’s supported bus services in Aberdeenshire, Stagecoach North Scotland is inviting customers to review their proposed timetables from Tuesday, February 12 until February 22. All feedback received will be reviewed ahead of the final timetables being submitted for registration. The new timetables are to take effect from Monday, April 15 2019.
The majority of journeys and services that are proposed to be withdrawn are as a direct result of the changes proposed by Aberdeenshire Council in line with the reduction in their budget. The changes aren’t all cuts though as Stagecoach is proposing to introduce a new commuter service that will provide links for those living in Banchory to travel to work in Westhill and Prime Four Monday – Friday.
David Liston, managing director for Stagecoach North Scotland said: “We completely understand the pressures that Aberdeenshire Council face with the reduction in their budget. We have worked closely together to identify solutions to minimise the impact of these changes for our customers. Customer comments do help us to ensure we have optimised departure times and routes and would be grateful for all comments by Friday, February 22, 2019.”
