QR codes and screens at bus stops

Find out how to use quick recognition (QR) codes at bus stops and see a list of bus stop locations with electronic screens.

QR codes

Bus stops in Aberdeenshire that have a timetable installed contain QR codes that can be scanned using the camera of your smartphone.

If your camera doesn’t scan QR codes automatically, you will need to download a QR code scanner app for free to your phone from the relevant app store. You can then scan the QR code, using the QR code scanner app downloaded and will take you to the web departure board for the bus stop in question. This can then be saved to your "favourites" to be accessed when on the go.

We do not charge for this service, however depending on your mobile telephone contract data usage costs may apply.

Electronic screens

Some principal bus stops in Aberdeenshire have electronic information screens installed that will provide live bus departure information where available. The screens are either installed within bus shelters or free standing near the bus stop. The larger, freestanding screens offer additional services such as journey planning.

Live departures will be shown as a number of minutes until departure (for example "2 mins") while scheduled departures will be shown as the timetabled departure time (for example 09:30).
