With effect from 11/2/19 the waiting room at Kingswells Park & Ride will be opened when the first No 747 service arrives and closed when the last bus departs, seven days a week, making it much more comfortable for passengers waiting for a bus, especially in cold or wet weather.
Local councillor Steve Delaney said, “I first raised this matter some years ago following budget cuts which had left the facility unmanned.
“Temporary solutions were put in place from time to time but some fell by the wayside and most arrangements only covered a few hours a day on weekdays.
“With the introduction of the No 14 service last year I once again approached the council’s Public Transport Unit on this matter and they agreed to try to identify a solution and keep it under review.
“Now that the 747 Airport Service is up and running, Stagecoach has agreed to have their drivers open and close the waiting room at the start and end of each day, seven days a week.
“This is going to make a huge difference to local residents and make it much more appealing to use the bus to get to and from work”.
This arrangement will continue for the foreseeable future unless otherwise advised by the operator.
