It's no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering on public transport in England, Scotland or Wales. We do encourage you to wear a face covering in crowded spaces, if you can. For the latest travelling safely information for England, Wales and Scotland, see our Coronavirus page.
Would you be interested if there was one small adjustment you could make to your daily routine that would start to save your money and your time? What if we said that same thing could also help to save our planet? We know, surely not, that just sounds too good to be true…
Transport accounts for more than a quarter of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions, the main source being petrol and diesel cars. Nobody loves to travel more than we do - our 400 buses operated some 20 million miles in North Scotland last year - but let’s look at this in really simple terms, one bus can replace up to 75 car trips.
Having invested more than £14.5 million in 58 brand new buses for North Scotland over the past 4 years and with each and every one of those buses fitted with low-emissions technology, we are taking proactive steps to reduce our impact on the environment as a responsible transport provider. We even welcomed the first fleet of fully electric buses to Scotland – taking you from A to B with zero emissions!
So, where could you start on your quest of saving time and money? Right here in Aberdeen! If there is just one trip each month that you could do using sustainable transport, we'd love to welcome you on board one of our buses.

More than 12 buses an hour between ARI and the city centre.

If you take the bus for just one trip each month you can sleep easy that you're doing your bit to protect our planet for future generations to come.
All of our buses are fitted with live bus tracking and you can access this for free on our mobile app. Back in 2018 we kitted out all our buses with facilities for taking contactless payments too, or if you prefer to pay cash then don’t worry about having change because all of our drivers give change.
