QR Codes and Screens at Bus Stops

QR Codes

Bus stops in Aberdeenshire that have a timetable installed also contain quick recognition(QR) codes that can be scanned using a smartphone. In order to use this feature, the smartphone must have a QR reader installed and these are available for free from the relevant app store.

Scanning the QR code will bring up a departure screen on your phone for the bus stop and will include live departures if available. This can then be saved to your "favourites" to be accessed when on the go.

Aberdeenshire council 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).
