The new director of bus company First Aberdeen has promised to speed up journey times.
Duncan Cameron took up the position of director and general manager at the company at the end of last week.
He was previously the operations director of the Aberdeen firm.
Mr Cameron has promised to encourage more people to travel by bus in the city.
He said: "Going forward we will be investing in brand new buses; we hope to unveil details of a new showcase route soon; we are considering introducing initiatives such as a 'customer promise' whereby customers unhappy with a particular service can be compensated.
“Customers can also expect more incentives to travel by bus, such as partnerships with local retailers, special promotional offers on season tickets and so on.
"I'm also keen to have a look at speeding up journey times, if we can, without it affecting our ability to run a punctual and reliable service. The road network is often congested but despite this we will look at how we might make our services quicker.
"I'm already relishing the new role and the responsibilities it brings. My focus will be on our customers and I hope they will welcome the improvements we have planned."
