The largest bus depot in Moray could be in line for a significant upgrade under new proposals to revamp it into a transport base.
Elgin bus station would be transformed with improved access for pedestrians and vehicles.
A PA system would also be installed along with external lighting enhanced, replacement seating and a canopy.
It is estimated the works would cost £70,000, with match funding potentially identified from HITRANS and Stagecoach.
These proposals are part of applications submitted by the local authority for funding from the £1.2 million pot the Scottish Government has put forward to improve town centres in Moray.
Buckie transport links could also be improved with plans lodged for the construction of a bus stop bay facing north on Barhill Road, to improve passenger safety when boarding and disembarking from public transport vehicles.
Moray Council will be welcoming applications for turning empty space in Elgin, Forres, Buckie, Lossiemouth and Keith, into living space.
Grants of up to 50% of project costs, capped at £150,000, are available for structural works, replacement windows, rewiring and creating new entrances to properties.
Moray Council convener Shona Morrison insisted the aim of the fund was to breathe new life into tired town centres across the region.
She said: “What we want to see are transformational projects that will bring a real benefit to our town centres and settlements.
“This is a real opportunity for investment in Moray at no cost to the applicant nor the council. Any unspent money will have to be returned to the Scottish Government, so I’d encourage anyone thinking of applying to make sure they meet the application deadline of 21 June 2019.”
Smaller settlements with a population of 1,000 or more, which includes Lhanbryde, Burghead, Hopeman, Dufftown, Kinloss, Cullen, Aberlour, Rothes, Portknockie, Findochty and Mosstodloch, are also eligible to apply for money from the fund.
Money is available for improvements to shop fronts, as well as the installation of digital smart systems, for example those monitoring footfall, road traffic and air quality.
Road shows will take place across Moray in May where those interested in applying for a grant can attend and get more information about eligibility and discuss potential projects.
