Aberdeen City Council Draft Bus Information Strategy Consultation

Stuart Smith2010, News

In accordance with the Transport (Scotland) Act 2001 and the Aberdeen Local Transport Strategy 2008-2012, Aberdeen City Council is developing a Bus Information Strategy for the City.

During January and February 2010, an open consultation was held with members of the public and stakeholders on the state of existing bus information provision within Aberdeen, receiving almost 1000 responses.  The results of this process have been combined with a best practice review and in-depth research into all forms of currently available information in Aberdeen to prepare a Draft Bus Information Strategy, which is now available for public consultation via the Council’s website.


The Draft Strategy outlines the Council’s vision for improving the quality and availability of bus information in Aberdeen, with the ultimate aim of making such information as accessible and comprehensive as possible to all residents of, and visitors to, the City. It describes a series of improvements to be made and identifies maintenance that is required and who is responsible for each element of this. The Council is committed to working in partnership with bus operators, Nestrans and Aberdeenshire Council to achieve the aims and objectives of the Strategy.

The Consultation period closes on Friday 14th January 2011 at 5pm. Please send any views or comments to transportstrategy@aberdeencity.gov.uk or to the address below. If anyone requires a paper copy of the Strategy, please call (01224) 523324.
