Kingswells need a bus service- we need a weekend service- a link to the Lang stracht and hospital- and a bus which comes around the village so we do not have to walk half an hour to catch a bus. People can feel isolated without the bus.
Elderly people should be able to go to meet their friends or go to church at the weekend. Teenagers should be able to go to clubs or shopping with friends at the weekend and gain independence by taking the bus.
It should not take me 50 minutes to make a 15 minute car journey home from work every day because I have to walk to catch the bus and take a tour around the crematorium.
Please think of those who rely on the service which serves the village.
It's a disgrace to have to walk all the way to the park and ride with a baby and a 4 years old. And even worse when it rains and there's no bus at all in the week ends. Why the week end? That's when there's more to do with the kids and I don't take the pram as there's normally other prams on the bus and some coach buses have steps too. It's just crazy. People don't rely on 94 coz the time you wait for it, you could have walked to park and ride and back!
Proposal For New Bus Service in Kingswells September 2017
The following extract from the council papers describing the Proposal For New Bus in Kingswells Service September 2017. The full report is available for your information.
3.3.4 The current service requires passengers to connect at the P&R and the
current cost to Council is high as there is no fare revenue to offset the running
costs and there is a change in service between daytime and evening which
has resulted in an inconsistent two-tier service. On this basis, it is considered
that a service should be supported with a 30 minute peak time service
daytime, a minimum hourly service off-peak and in the evenings between
06:00 to 23:00 Monday to Saturday and an hourly service on Sundays,
between 08:00 to 22:00. It is recommended where possible for any service to
travel via Lang Stracht and Westburn Road as the feedback from the
community has highlighted the importance of this link; however when doing so
consideration would have to be given to the availability of funding.
