Popular Dundee Travel Scheme Returns for Summer Holidays

21 Jun 2019

  • 20p kids bus fares to return
  • Initiative will run throughout Summer school holidays

A popular scheme which helps families with young children in the Dundee area to minimise travel costs during the school holidays will return this summer.

Local bus operators including Stagecoach East Scotland have once again teamed up with Dundee City Council to offer a reduced 20p fare to children when they’re travelling with an adult or concession ticket holder.

Launched in 2017, the initiative was so successful in its first year that it was extended into 2018, and now 2019, for each holiday period.

Covering all journeys in the ABC Dundee ticket zone, the scheme is backed by Smarter Choices Smarter Places, Dundee City Council, Stagecoach East Scotland, Xplore Dundee, and Moffat and Williamson.

Stagecoach East Scotland Managing Director, Douglas Robertson, said: "We’re always thrilled to be a part of the 20p kids travel scheme.

“The summer holidays can be an expensive time for parents, but with kids travel for 20p and fantastic free local attractions like V&A Dundee, everyone can afford to go out as a family this summer.”

Running from Saturday 29 June to Monday 12 August, the scheme will allow families to enjoy a day out and discover the city by bus. Up to three under 16s are allowed per adult/concession holder and this includes people using season tickets and weekly passes to travel.
