Plans to shake-up bus services in Aberdeen will go ahead.
First Bus is poised to change a number of services across the Granite City including the withdrawal of the number five.
It was revealed back in June that the bus firm was in consultation with stakeholders about the potential move.
The plans have now been approved and are set to come into operation on August 20.
The number five, which primarily serves Torry and Northfield, will be withdrawn, but First Bus has stressed the communities will be served by extending other services.
Torry Community Council had previously raised concerns over the lack of communication and assurances on timetable changes.
David Phillips, First Aberdeen managing director, thanked residents who took part in the consultation which led to some changes being implemented.
He said: “We’re always committed to serving the city of Aberdeen and as part of that commitment we have widened our consultation on service proposals.
“A broad range of feedback was received from customers and stakeholders during this extended period of consultation and we are pleased to include a number of these suggestions in the final changes.
“We would like to thank all those who have played a part in shaping future services.
“The recent roll-out of contactless payments, the continued development of our mobile mTickets offer and the major refresh of our travel app are just some of the other ways in which we are developing our services for customers.”
First Bus said that changes will improve the journey times and the revised routes will cover more locations in the city.
Due to the feedback from stakeholders, both services on the eight and nine will operate to Dubford.
George Street will continue to be served by the number 16.
An additional journey will also be added in the morning for the service on the number 17 route from Faulds Gate to the city centre.
The number 18 has also been revised following consultation to include the new recycling facility on Hareness Road.
The number 20 is set to be extended to Balnagask to replace the withdrawal of the number five.
