Councillor for Peterhead South and Cruden Stephen Smith has contacted senior management at bus operator Stagecoach after concerns from constituents at the withdrawal of early morning services between Hatton or Cruden Bay and Peterhead.
Since the services were withdrawn Mr Smith has received concerns from several local residents who are now no longer able to get to Peterhead by public transport before 9am.
The 6.30am and 7.30am services have been withdrawn and the earliest service to Peterhead now leaves Cruden Bay at 8.44am.
Commenting Mr Smith said: “I appreciate that with lockdown, less people are using public transport and Stagecoach must adjust its services accordingly.
“However, the feedback I have received indicates that there is a need for an earlier service into Peterhead serving Cruden Bay and Hatton than this new timetable provides.
“Stagecoach have been responsive over the past 10 months in ensuring such needs are fulfilled in other situations so I would be hopeful they will respond positively to the concerns expressed by local residents through myself.”
