Bikes on buses in Royal Deeside

Aberdeenshire Council and Stagecoach Bluebird launched the ‘bikes on buses’ service on vehicles along Royal Deeside as part of a trial in 2010, and feedback has revealed that general promotion of the initiative has resulted in more people using the service with their bikes.

As a result the service is being re-promoted, with posters being displayed at bus stops along the route and also on buses themselves.The initiative aims to encourage people to use the bus for one leg of their journey and cycle the rest of the way. Passengers boarding the bus with a bike should speak to the driver who will happily stow the bike in the vehicle at no extra cost.
