Key aims of the study are to identify options that:

  • Increase the modal share of active travel on the A93 corridor for all journey types;
  • Improve accessibility to active travel and public transport on the A93 corridor from nearby communities;
  • Increase the modal share of public transport on the A93 corridor for all journey types;
  • Support sustainable communities along the A93 corridor;
  • Support the role of the A93 corridor as the gateway to Royal Deeside.

This study is part of a series of ongoing multi-modal corridor studies across Aberdeen, some funded through Transport Scotland's Bus Partnership Fund (BPF).
