Service 727 goes 24 hours

21 Jun 2019

The JET service 727 has bucked all national trends in bus patronage growing from strength to strength since it was introduced in 2010. Local bus operator, Stagecoach, has today announced they will be introducing even more journeys to the timetable on the frequent service in Aberdeen city.  

 

From Monday 8th July the timetable will be enhanced to offer journeys around the clock between Aberdeen city centre and Aberdeen Airport. The service will be extended to operate every hour from 10.30pm until 3.30am and the daytime frequency of every 10 minutes will remain the same. The additional journeys will be welcome news to shift workers in Aberdeen as well as a safe and affordable option for those requiring a late night service home from the city centre to Great Northern Road or Bucksburn.

 

In 2017 the service was recognised at the Scottish Transport Awards picking up the award for the Best Bus Service in Scotland recognising the sustained operational excellence of the reliability of the service as well as passenger growth and a vehicle investment of £1.7 million. The service is operated by a fleet of luxury double deck buses fully kitted out with contactless payment facilities, luggage racks, USB charging and free wi-fi.

 

David Liston, Managing Director, Stagecoach North Scotland said: “We are delighted to once again be enhancing our popular JET 727 service for customers making the trip home from a great night out in town or heading to the airport for the early flights. Our Aberdeen team do a fantastic job bringing this route to life every day of the week and we hope the revisions we will be making to introduce new trips will make travelling by bus within Aberdeen city an even more attractive option.”

 

Steve Szalay, Managing Director, Aberdeen International Airport said: “The JET 727 service has been hugely popular with our passengers and staff and we are delighted that the service is to be extended to run 24 hours a day. The route is a fundamental part of the travel services offering to and from the airport and we look forward to this new exciting chapter with Stagecoach.”
