Man, 64, reported in probe into alleged attempted murder
and 10pm on a Sunday.
“Given the assessment that has been made, this may be a standalone service or an existing service and there are a number of options which officers could tender for.”
But, the council’s officers ruled out introducing councilbacked buses in Footdee and the beach, Lower Deeside, Leggart and the airport/ Dyce Station.
There have been no buses to the beach and Footdee in the evenings for a “considerable period” of time.
But the report said most residents in the beach area are within a “reasonable walking distance” to a bus service with “only Footdee” a “considerable distance”.
Mr Cormack said: “The population of Footdee is small and the level of demand would not substantiate the cost of a supported service where the subsidy per passenger would be extremely high. As such it is recommended that no further action is taken.”
Lower Deeside and Leggart have been ruled out for assistance as there is already a community transport dial-a-bus service in those areas for people with mobility problems. At the airport, the service 80, run by Stagecoach North, was withdrawn due to low use but officers said there are alternatives to get to the airport and Kirkhill Industrial Estate.
A First Aberdeen spokesman said: “We are pleased that this council report says the majority of the city is served to a “satisfactory level” by commercial bus services.
“First Aberdeen has faced challenges in seeking to operate sustainable commercial services on some of these routes due to low customer numbers and rising costs.
“We are always willing to assist the city council wherever possible to deliver public transport and close the gaps identified in the report.”
Police were called to Sinclair Road.
Concerned by the time it has taken to get here
GONE: The Kingswells X40 service was withdrawn.
