Stagecoach has revealed a new look for the buses taking people to their Covid-19 vaccination in Aberdeen.

The JET 727 service between the bus and rail stations in Aberdeen city centre and the airport via city’s new P&J Live arena has been given a new-look reflecting the changing needs of those using the service. The nine double-deck buses will carry people to their vaccination up to every 20 minutes, seven days a week.

Peter Knight, Managing Director for Stagecoach Bluebird said: “I was really pleased when I heard P&J Live was to open as our local mass vaccination centre. The JET 727 route has been the flagship bus service for P&J Live since opening in 2019. We are extremely proud to have kept this vital service operating throughout the pandemic and it now has a new purpose, helping people get to their vaccination.”

Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment, Exhibitions and Marketing for P&J Live said: “The JET 727 has always been a vital service connecting the venue with the city centre and airport, as P&J Live is now fully operational as a mass vaccination centre, the service is now crucial for staff and those attending vaccination appointments.”
