Ellon Park & Ride to Garthdee Transport Corridor Study

Closed 25 Aug 2021

Opened 9 Aug 2021


Aberdeen City Council supported by Nestrans is undertaking a Scottish Transport Appraisal Guidance (STAG)-based appraisal of options for improving transport connections, in particular public transport and active travel (walking, wheeling & cycling) from the Park and Ride in Ellon, Aberdeenshire to Garthdee Road, Aberdeen City.

Please find below a map overview of the study corridor.

Key aims of the study are to identify options that:

  • Improve walking, wheeling and cycling on the corridor
  • Increase the competitiveness of walking, wheeling and cycling for short trips
  • Improve public transport reliability and journey times thereby supporting recovery and growth in bus patronage on the corridor

Why your views matter

We are consulting to gain your views and feedback on options that have been developed towards improving travel on the corridor. 

As part of the STAG-based appraisal process, a large number of options have been developed to meet the study objectives. More information about individual options under consideration is presented in a Story Map which is available to view at the following link:


As part of this consultation, we want to understand what types of options you would like to see considered for the corridor and so have grouped options into categories which you will find in the survey.

We therefore invite you to give us your views following the survey link in the box below and if you have further questions or comments, please contact:
