Blue Glove Litter

If you use the blue disposable gloves while getting vehicle fuel, could you please ensure that they are disposed of correctly. The bag below demonstrates how many gloves one of our volunteer litter pickers collected in the area surrounding the Tesco Store, in one session, a few days ago.

Further Changes to Bus Timetable

Changes to bus services from Monday 30 March

 Update from Stagecoach Bluebird on changes to timetables

  • Any comments on the revised timetables encouraged through  www.stagecoachbus.com/coronavirus
  • Stagecoach continue to help tackle challenging situation
  • Safety and well-being of customers and bus employees  remains top priority

    Stagecoach Bluebird has provided an update on further changes being made to its timetables in response to government advice on avoiding non-essential travel.

    Further revised timetables will be in place from Monday 30th March and are now available at stagecoachbus.com.  These temporary timetables ensure that critical routes are maintained and will operate across the region until further notice.

    Following an analysis of the demand for bus services in the area at this time, the frequency of most services will be reduced but will still cater for essential shopping trips to be made. Feedback received since Monday 23rd March has been used to develop the reduced timetables and will better cater for shift patterns of key workers who still rely on the bus to commute to work.

Peter Knight, managing director for Stagecoach Bluebird said: “We continue to play a crucial role in ensuring that key workers, such as NHS staff and the people vital to the food supply chain, can get into work.

“We have worked hard with our temporary timetables to ensure that we are continuing to serve critical routes. If our customers feel we haven’t got things quite right, then we’d really like to receive any comments through our dedicated feedback form which can be found at stagecoachbus.com.

“I’m extremely proud of the way in way our team across Aberdeenshire and Moray is pulling together to ensure that we can continue to deliver our services.  They are key workers too and I would like to thank them for their continued support and resilience in these challenging times.”

In addition to enhanced cleaning regimes, Stagecoach has taken extensive action to protect the safety of its customers and staff with a number of additional measures in place. Contactless payments are being encouraged wherever possible and social distancing guidelines are being displayed on buses.

Customers can stay up to date with all the latest news from Stagecoach on Twitter @StagecoachBBird or by signing up to their email mailing list. Full details are available at stagecoachbus.com.
