Transportation in Aberdeen
A hop-on, hop-off bus tour takes visitors to Aberdeen's main sights. First Aberdeen and Stagecoach Bluebird run services throughout the city and beyond.
Aberdeen is designed to be seen on (a comfortably-shod) foot, weather permitting. Even the most sedentary person can get around its level and compact centre. Outside the city, walking trails abound in the hills and along the coastline.
Plentiful and reasonably priced, taxis can be hailed on the street or at ranks dotted about the centre.
Driving in the centre is easy and generally congestion-free. However, parking can be problematic as well as pricey, so the bus is often a better bet. The MegaRider ticket offers seven days' unlimited travel on Aberdeen buses. An Explorer ticket allows travel with some restrictions for 3, 5 or 8 days on Scottish Citylink services.
