Kingswells meeting well attended

Around 250 people turned out to a public meeting to discuss the future of an Aberdeen bus service.

From tomorrow, the X40 service will cease as First Bus scraps the route.

Residents attended the meeting at Kingswells Community Centre to air their views on the situation.

Last month the city council agreed to safeguard the service through an interim replacement, the X94.

Aberdeen City Council’s transport spokesman, Councillor Ross Grant, was on hand to answer questions from frustrated commuters.

He said: “It’s obvious there are a number of serious issues with where public transport is going and it was evident tonight that the community would support looking into more council-run services.”

Just to add that whilst First have withdrawn the 11 & x40 from Kingswells seems they are still happy to run their training buses round the village!! One seen in such a run this morning, unbelievable! Anyway hope the service is sorted out soon, one thing not mentioned at this meeting a few weeks ago could the community startup a service if the council keep dragging their heels? Scott Moir
