First Bus

Official Aberdeen City Public Transport Partner

First Bus has renewed its partnership with Aberdeen FC as Official Aberdeen City Public Transport Partner for a further two years.

A long-term supporter of Aberdeen FC, First Bus will continue to work collaboratively with the Club to encourage supporters to make more use of public transport and to travel sustainably, particularly when travelling on a matchday to Pittodrie.

First Bus will once again be offering Dons fans a discounted rate for travel available to purchase ahead of every home league match at Pittodrie, with the Club helping to promote these offers through its media platforms.

Rob Wicks, AFC’s Commercial Director said: “Now that we are finally returning to some kind of normality, we are delighted to have First Bus onboard with us for a further two years.

“Supporter engagement is critical to the Club, and it is vital we continue to work with partners such as First Bus who are as committed and eager as we are to get people engaged with the football club.

“I’ve no doubt their fantastic, discounted tickets and free travel for youngsters will continue to help us foster our fans of the future, giving them further encouragement to come along and enjoy the matchday experience at Pittodrie.”

“We look forward to developing this invaluable partnership further and creating new, exciting initiatives together.”

Duncan Cameron, Interim Managing Director for First Bus added: “We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with Aberdeen FC as their Official Public Transport Partner and to continue to serve Dons fans with these exclusive travel offers.

“First Bus has been part of the community for many years in Aberdeen and is rooted in our business as the birthplace of our company. Our partnership with the football club will allow us to reach a wider audience to further encourage people to choose public transport as their preferred method of travel, especially on matchdays at Pittodrie and we are delighted to be supporting them for another two years.”

The discounted travel tickets will be available to purchase through the First Bus app and will allow supporters unlimited travel on First Aberdeen routes on matchday.
