Hospital Direct Route 59
Running late for an appointment? Hate the hassle of parking? Our Hospital Direct Route 59 is not only our most frequent hospital service, but is also direct to the hospital door. With buses up to every 10 minutes it’s ideal for those who are working at or visiting ARI.
Due to the frequency of our Route 59 buses we recognise the importance of sustainable travel. That is why Hospital Direct Route 59 is operated by Stagecoach electric hybrid buses. These vehicles emit nearly a third less carbon dioxide than a conventional bus and have already proven to be the best performing buses in hybrid trials in London.
The Hospital Direct route 59 connects:
- Aberdeen Royal Infirmary
- City centre
It leaves up to every ten minutes Mondays to Fridays and up to every twenty minutes at the weekends. You can download the full Hospital Direct Route 59 timetable here.
