With global warming a worrying reality, it's possible for many of us to use the car less, or not have a car at all. Public transport is a realistic alternative, whether travelling to work in Aberdeenshire, or journeys further afield to Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London…..and even Paris.
Season tickets offer good value for daily travellers. It's worth booking in advance for longer journeys, to get the best bargains. You can add Aberdeen PlusBus to train tickets for travelling in the Aberdeen area, or combined rail and bus tickets to places like Aboyne and Westhill.
