Bus lanes on Aberdeenshire corridor considered
Bus lanes on the A93 between Aberdeen and Banchory are being considered as part of plans to improve transport along the corridor.
Among cycle and walking infrastructure proposals, plans include implementing eastbound and westbound bus lanes along the route.
An Aberdeen City Council report said among options that could be reviewed is a traffic signal review to consider bus priority at all traffic signals along the A93 corridor.
Further courses of action suggested by the report include conducting a route-wide review of bus stop provision and infrastructure, as well as looking at options to improve boarding and alighting times on bus services along the corridor. It also suggested investigating enhancing opportunities for cycle carriage on bus services on the corridor, as well as utilising apps to provide real-time information to bus passengers of the ability to take bikes on buses. Further ideas include implementing ticketing options for multi-modal journeys and exploring the feasibility of implementing Demand Responsive Services and increasing the frequency of bus services on the A93.
