Part of the reason I wish to see the bus retained is that I am growing older. Walking to the local shops or back from the shops may become more difficult - I would like the option of catching a bus within and between stops in the village, whether to go to the shops or to visit friends.

The proposals are not at all clear about the evening service, or what happens during school holidays. Rather than hearing a lot about which services are about to be stopped, can First Bus make it clear about the proposed timetable for any remaining service? Are they planning to provide any replacement service?  

Unfortunately, First is not proposing a replacement service and there is no service remaining to timetable.

Good points about Kingswells needing an internal service and not just a service to go elsewhere.

Have you tried stopping the bus between stops? I suppose the success rate would be down to individual drivers and the number of passengers on the bus at the time. It would be easier to stop at off-peak times.Embarassed

Cheaper tickets to get from one side of the village to the other are required. It would cost me £2.30 to get from Wellside to the P&R if I wanted to go out to westhill  

If Stagecoach were to run the service you could get a day ticket and go to town or Westhill for one fare.

People who go to town and onward would still need 2 tickets.

We really need First and Stagecoach to work together to provide a 'rover' ticket.

We need figures on where people are going.

Now that I work in the city centre and have no parking provided, it is far too expensive for me to take the car every day.

The bus is a great alternative. If the travel times were quicker that would be better but I accept that this isn't always possible.

I think the current service does well

Buses need to be clean, comfortable with drivers who know the route.

Fares are to expensive - car costs less to run and more convenient.

Need smaller 'Beaver Buses' which are run by a local or community company that has an interest in the residents needs and not the share price.

I only use at evenings or weekends when I go into Aberdeen - this will not increase if bus service improves but will be severely affected if the service is removed. I do not work in Aberdeen and don't drive to the town centre if possible

Smaller buses, shorter route, keep rush time buses but lessen during the day where service is not used as much. Lessen prices!

If first bus are not willing to provide this service could another bus company be approached.

I personally don't use the bus, I find it far too expensive and it is not practical to use it to get to my job in Mugiemoss
