Bus operator Xplore insists it will work to protect its customers after safety concerns were raised over changes to a city service.
Union boss David Lardner warned that passengers were being put at risk following the rerouting of the 9/10 outer circle service which means it will no longer serve Technology Park. The changes are due to start on Sunday.
Mr Lardner, secretary of the local branch of the Public and Commercial Services Union, said the changes would have a major impact and compromise the safety of staff at the park.
But a spokesman for Xplore has insisted the company is doing all it can to help passengers.
He said: “We’re currently working with a group called Living Streets – they’ve got funding which is to be used to make minor changes which might make it easier/safer for people to walk and catch the bus.
“We’ve submitted some ideas – including the suggestion of lighting and clearing the path in Technology Park.
“This would make it easier for people working here to access alternative services at the bus stops close to this path.
“It’s very much in the early stages so there’s not much we can confirm.”
The spokesman added: “We have consulted with all sections of the community and carried out extensive monitoring of bus use in Technology Park while considering the latest timetable changes, and services in the area were also independently checked by Bus Users Scotland.
“We believe the changes coming into effect next week will ensure a much more reliable service and will meet the needs of passengers in this area.
“Although the outer circle no longer serves Technology Park, commuters can still use service 17, which runs every half an hour from early morning to late at night Monday-Friday.
“We fully appreciate and agree the links we provide to Technology Park are vital and we want to ensure we can sustain them.”
