Proposal For New Bus in Kingswells Service September 2017 Was Approved

Proposal For New Bus Service in Kingswells September 2017 Was Approved

We are please to advise that Councillors approved the following, so we now need to await a tender process. All being well we should have a better bus service in January 2018.

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.
