Stagecoach today released details of bus services over the Christmas and New Year period.
During the Christmas and New Year period, Stagecoach will keep you connected with their festive timetables operating between 21st December and 5th January 2021 with exceptions on 25th December and 1st January 2021.
Long distance services in Aberdeenshire and Moray to Aberdeen will be operating on Boxing Day for customers who need to travel, along with essential city services in Aberdeen such as the 59 to ARI and Jet 727 to Aberdeen Airport.
Peter Knight, Managing Director for Stagecoach Bluebird said: "This year hasn't been without its challenges, however, I'm really pleased that families will be able to get together over Christmas. We are proud to play a part in keeping our communities across Aberdeenshire & Moray connected and support our customers travel needs during the festive season.
The safety of our customers and employees is our priority so we would like to thank everyone for following government guidance when travelling with us. All of our safety measures will continue to be in place but we would like to remind everyone that services may be busier than normal and to plan your journey ahead of time.
I’m very appreciative to everyone at Bluebird for their amazing contribution and commitment during such uncertain times, the team have been working hard to keep our customers journey a smooth and safe one.
I would like to thank in advance all my colleagues who will be working to keep people connected over Christmas. We would also like to wish our customers a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021."
