Waiting and waiting in vain at Kingswells Park & Ride: (No) Lavvies Aberdeen City Council

Why does Aberdeen City Council ‘run’ the waiting room and toilets at Kingswells Park & Ride?

Park & Ride is supposed to provide a service to people driving distances from the Shire to avoid having them block up Aberdeen streets. People travelling distances often require to use the lavatories but Aberdeen City Council continues its aversion to providing toilets under its watch.

So arriving AGAIN at the Park & Ride (this morning) I found the waiting room and toilets locked.

Today it was sunny. Those of us waiting for the bus waited outside. There is one slim bench in the fairly open bus shelter at the stop but when it’s raining, sleet or snow the only cover is in the bike shed.

AND THERE ARE NO LAVATORIES IN THE BIKE SHED.

Every time I’ve used this Park & Ride over the past weeks the waiting room has been locked.
What do bus drivers do when they need to go to the lavatory?

Why is this facility not being run by First Bus? It couldn’t be worse than CLOSED as if often is now.

For passengers they have to cross their legs until they get into town and then it’s spot the public toilet.

Oh, and the price has just increased.

The Council encourages pubs, shops and restaurants to open their toilets because it has been closing down the council ones.

BUT TRY USING THE COUNCIL’S OWN FEW FACILITIES SUCH AS THE MUSIC HALL AND YOU ARE CONFRONTED BY NOTICES PROHIBITING USE OF THE TOILETS BY ANYONE OTHER THAN THOSE USING THE CAFÉ.

Aberdeen City Council – the people who couldn’t care less.
