The theme of the evening will be “Transport Matters ... because Transport Matters” and there will be an opportunity for discussions on ideas for better transport, community-based transport solutions, non-motorised solutions and how to integrate the various alternative solutions.

A representative from Aberdeenshire Council’s Transportation Infrastructure Services will also give a short talk on the subject.

This will be followed by small group discussions where members of the public will be able to share their views and ideas with stakeholders.

Organisations offering transport solutions are also invited to promote their services.
