Stagecoach are proposing to cut services across the north east of Scotland. Many people already do not use the bus service across Aberdeenshire because it is already quite unreliable and patchy in places.
Cutting services leads to increased car use, busier roads and increased air pollution. Stagecoach have published their new draft timetables and are asking for our feedback. Please make your feelings known NOW before it’s too late.
Why is this important?
The Scottish Govenment National Transport Strategy sets out three Key Strategic Outcomes to be used as the guiding principles at national, regional and local level when developing strategy and prioritising resources.
Improved journey times and connections, to tackle congestion and lack of integration and connections in transport.
Reduced emissions, to tackle climate change, air quality, health improvement.
Improved quality, accessibility and affordability, to give choice of public transport, better quality services and value for money or alternative to car.
