Deeside Community Buses - We offer not-for-profit groups affordable, door to door travel to their activities and outings with accredited training for volunteer drivers. Our community buses are well maintained and are fitted with lifts for wheelchair access. We have a 13 and 16 seater (not including the driver) available for hire and our current hire charge is £1.05/mile with a £20 minimum hire charge.

Mid Deeside Hospital Transport - We use our fleet of community buses and a volunteer car pool to transport people to and from Aboyne Hospital and Aboyne Medical Centre within the Mid Deeside area. We have a team of volunteers who give their time to support this great initiative that was jointly funded by Marr Area Health & Wellbeing Care Fund, Aberdeenshire Council and Mid Deeside Community Trust.
