19 June 2019Bus Timetable Consultation
Message received from Stagecoach:
Stagecoach North Scotland is inviting customers to review their proposed timetables from Tuesday 18th June until Friday 28th June 2019. All feedback received will be reviewed ahead of the final timetables being submitted for registration. The new timetables are planned to take effect from Monday 19th August 2019.
Aberdeenshire Council made some changes to supported services and in line with these changes coming into effect on Monday 19th August the local bus operator has reviewed their network across Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire. Also from the same date a series of revisions are proposed to take place in the Highlands.
David Liston, Managing Director for Stagecoach North Scotland said: “Our plans to revise our network in August follow a thorough analysis of the performance of our bus services and also take on board feedback from our customers, stakeholders and staff. We continually monitor our services and these revisions will allow us to improve our reliability and use all of our resources in the best way to meet the demand for bus travel across the region. All feedback received helps us to ensure we have optimised departure times and routes and would be grateful for all comments by Friday 28th June 2019 either via email or in person at one of the events we will be hosting or attending.”
