Bus travel on north-east routes is to get an upgrade with a £600,000 investment in vehicles.
Stagecoach announced 10 new minibuses are to join its fleet.
The Mercedes Sprinter vehicles are fitted with faux leather seats, seatbelts and low-noise engines.
They accept contactless payments and are fitted with tracking technology.
The buses are being rolled out across Aberdeenshire and Moray from this month.
In Peterhead, they will be used on services 81, 82, 83 and 84A/C, and in Banchory it will be used as a school bus service on behalf of Aberdeenshire Council.
One will be used on service 31 in Moray.
David Liston, managing director for Stagecoach North Scotland, said: “We are delighted to introduce the Mercedes minibuses to our fleet for the first time.
“We look forward to welcoming customers on board.”
