First Aberdeen has announced a new late night service ‘U1’ that will provide a link from Robert Gordon University to the city centre and King Street during January exams. The service will operate from the 9th of January until the 20th of January Monday to Friday.

David Adam, Operation Manager at First Bus said "we hope this will help students travel to the library during their study weeks and if successful we can look to providing this service at other times of the year."

Buses will leave campus outside of the Health Building at 1:15am, 2.15am, 3.15am and 4.15am which run alongside the 24 hour library during the exam period.

Second year journalism student Lauren Taylor said "the new bus timetable will be perfect for exam period as I'll be able to stay at the library as long as I want without the worry of walking back to the city center late at night - I definitely feel more safe knowing there will be a bus for me."

Normal fares will apply and all First Aberdeen tickets will be accepted, including all student annual, 7 day, 4 week and 12 week tickets if valid. UPDATE: Concessionary passes (i.e. Accord cards) WILL NOW BE accepted.

The service will follow the following timetable:
