First Aberdeen run Gig ‘n’ Go service to and from the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre. The Gig ‘n’ Go service stops and picks up customers on Union Street at Holburn Junction (opposite Foundry Bar) starting at 4.00pm until 8.00pm (approx. every 15 mins) and travels to the AECC stopping at Union Street (opposite Soul Bar), St Nicholas Kirk, Adelphi, Castlegate, King Street at Morrisons and King Street at St Machar roundabout. The bus will then pick up from the Park & Ride site and the AECC from 10.00pm until midnight.

A flat fare of £3 applies – you can pay on bus or purchase a £5 return ticket on Gig ‘n’ Go if you are using the service to and from the event. Gig n Go tickets are valid and can also be purchased on First services 1, 2 and X40, all of which operate to the AECC area.

AECC encourage visitors to find an alternative way to travel to the Venue, there are footpaths to take you right to our door (plan your journey here) and cycle lanes to guide you here safely.  For more information on cycle lanes in the City, please download a Cycle Map here.
