New bus services begin tomorrow – but opportunity missed

by Ian Yuill on 12 June, 2016

Photo of First Aberdeen busTwo new bus services serving our area, the 15a and 95, start on Monday 13th June – but sadly these will not restore a bus link from Airyhall to the city centre through Mannofield.

The 15a is an evening service on the route of the 15 service whilst the 95 runs from Culter to Asda at Garthdee via Airyhall and Mannofield.

Whilst any new bus service is welcome, the Labour and Conservative councillors who together run the city council rejected my proposal to reintroduce a bus service from Airyhall to the city centre via Mannofield.

People have told us they want this route restored and the local Liberal Democrats and I will continue working for this.

You can find the service 15a timetable here. Timetable information will also be available at bus stops.

  1. What about the timetable for Bus No 95? I want to catch it at Mannofield to go shopping in ASDA.

    I’m not in favour of 15a turning around the water sumps in Counteswells Avenue around 1130pm at night, in a quiet residential area. We live nearby and the noise disturb the kids. Really annoying.

    Thought it was great for no 15 to cease after 8pm ish. Was surprised with the newly introduced late 15a service.

    I am absolutely disgusted with First Bus. The Braeside area are still not being catered for.
