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.
