There will be changes to bus services throughout Aberdeenshire and Moray.
In response to government advice regarding non-essential travel, Stagecoach Bluebird has updated its timetables.
The revised services will ensure that critical routes are maintained and will operate across the region until further notice, they can be viewed at stagecoachbus.com on the coronavirus page.
The frequency of most services will be reduced but will still cater for essential shopping and for shift patterns of key workers who rely on the bus to commute to work.
Peter Knight, managing director for Stagecoach Bluebird, said: “We continue to play a crucial role in ensuring that key workers, such as NHS staff and the people vital to the food supply chain, can get into work.
“We have worked hard with our temporary timetables to ensure that we are continuing to serve critical routes. If our customers feel we haven’t got things quite right, then we’d really like to receive any comments through our dedicated feedback form which can be found at stagecoachbus.com.
“I’m extremely proud of the way in way our team across Aberdeenshire and Moray is pulling together to ensure that we can continue to deliver our services. They are key workers too and I would like to thank them for their continued support and resilience in these challenging times.”
As well as enhanced cleaning regimes, additional measures have been put in place to maintain the safety of staff and customers.
Contactless payments are encouraged and social distancing guidelines are being displayed on buses whenever possible.
