Heading into town this festive season? Why not take the train, bus or use one of the five park and ride sites in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire?

Leave the car at home and take the stress out of travel this Christmas. Visit to help plan your journey.

Getabout is a sustainable travel brand run by the Getabout partnership. Think about the best way to do each journey - can you save money, get fitter, be sociable just by finding a different way of getting to work, school or the shops, or visiting your friends and family?

It's not always practical, but for short, easy trips it may be faster to walk or cycle than to use a car. Encourage healthy habits by walking your children to school or get on your bikes - give them a good healthy example.

For those trips to town or about the city the bus and train can take the strain.

Whatever the journey, mix up your transport, get active and Getabout!
