Tarves and Methlick Councillor Paul Johnston has welcomed the introduction on 15th April 2 new bus service extensions to Ellon from the two villages. Stagecoach Bluebird have announced that they will run a service from Ellon to Methlick and then Tarves from 8:00 am on weekday mornings to then become the return bus from Tarves to Ellon.
In the evening the bus running from Ellon at 5:15 to Methlick, the Tarves will now return from Tarves at 5:47 back to Ellon via Methlick instead of terminating at the end of the outward journey.
“The extra services are a help for local travel making it easier to get from Ellon to Methlick and Back to Ellon at the beginning and end of the day” said Paul. “These improvements are largely to help Stagecoach get their buses to existing service starts, but they add to passenger choice locally and I thank them for the route improvements. These will be welcomed by local passengers.”
The route changes take effect on services starting April 15th.
