Premier Partners

As a Chamber, we are here to make a difference. Leading on vital policy agendas, creating business opportunity and celebrating our city region being a great place to live, work, study, visit, invest and do business - our aim is to create the buoyant, diversified regional economy that will enable our members and their employees to be more successful and prosperous.

Successful regions require strong leadership to encourage investment, skills, entrepreneurs and brave decision – the elements needed to deliver a renaissance for Aberdeen City and Shire.

Our Premier Partners also aim to make a difference. By working together, we can achieve what we could not individually and we thank them for their continued support.

For more information on what becoming a Premier Partner could mean for you, contact: Head of membership Seona Shand.

More than 175 buses transport around 50,000 people every day across Aberdeen. The company operates from its King Street bus depot and employs more than 500 staff.

    First Aberdeen have always been an industry leading operating company and this has continued recently with the introduction of mobile ticketing and contactless payments which have enabled us to provide customers with simpler ticketing options and faster journey times. We now have over 70% of our customer using cashless payment types such as smart, mobile and contactless ticketing to access our services.

    We’re continuing work with our industry partners as we encourage commuters to ditch the car and take the bus. For instance, a double decker bus has the potential to remove up to 75 cars from the road and therefore has a key part to play in delivering eco-friendly journeys across the region, as we look to ease the strain on our already congested roads.  We’re also working with businesses of all sizes to boost their employee benefits programmes through our Commuter Travel Club, which offers preferential rates for staff.
