P&J Live, the iconic new events venue opening in Aberdeen later this month, has secured Stagecoach North Scotland as its official transport partner.
Wednesday, August 7, 2019
The major bus operator is the third confirmed partner at the venue after DC Thomson Media was announced as naming rights partner and John Clark Motor Group as car partner.
As official transport partner, Stagecoach will work closely with P&J Live to provide services to make it as easy as possible for those travelling to and from the venue.
From today, Stagecoach will operate their JET 727 service via P&J Live. The service operates between Union Square in the heart of Aberdeen city centre and Aberdeen Airport, calling at key destinations such as Broad Street, Great Northern Road, Bucksburn and now, P&J Live. The service, which runs up to every 10 minutes, was recently enhanced to offer journeys around the clock, operating every hour from 10.30pm until 3.30am.
The Jet 727 was previously awarded as the Best Bus Service in Scotland and is operated by a fleet of luxury double deck buses fully kitted out with contactless payment facilities, luggage racks, USB charging and free wi-fi. Great value fares are available on the service, with unlimited travel across Aberdeen Zone 1 for just £3.80 per day or £12.85 per week.
As well as regular 24/7 services to P&J Live, as part of the partnership, Stagecoach will also operate direct shuttle services from Aberdeen City Centre to P&J Live on event days. Details of these shuttles will be communicated before each event, and the shuttles will offer quick, convenient and great value travel to concert-goers.
There’s also some good news for those planning to come to the Preview @ P&J Live event this Saturday, with Stagecoach offering free bus journeys on service 727 to and from the venue, on presentation of a mobile event ticket.
Louise Stewart, Head of Entertainment Sales & Marketing at P&J Live said “It’s great to announce this exciting partnership, and to be able to offer our customers dedicated services to and from the new venue. It’s important for us to stay accessible for all and by partnering with Stagecoach we believe this allows us to do that.”
Daniel Laird, Commercial Director, at Stagecoach North Scotland added “We’ve been working hard behind the scenes with P&J Live to develop a partnership which will benefit those travelling to P&J Live for business or pleasure. We’re delighted to be able to serve the venue with our popular JET 727 route, offering direct connections 24 hours a day to Aberdeen Airport and key destinations across the city. Additionally, our dedicated event shuttle services will be ideal for those heading to P&J Live for a great night out at music, comedy and entertainment events. We’re looking forward to playing a part in the success of this fantastic new facility for Aberdeen.”
