Black Friday Weekend 2019: Travel for a Fiver!

Where will you go with your £5 Black Friday weekend dayrider? Aberdeen? Glasgow? Edinburgh? The moon?

Okay, maybe we can't take you to the moon, but you CAN travel anywhere our buses go within East Scotland with our £5 Black Friday dayrider offer between Friday 29 November and Sunday 1 December. That's a saving of £11 off the normal ticket price!

Here are our eleven suggestions for how you can spend that bonus £11...


  1. Head to Livingston on service X51, and grab a cinema ticket from Vue. After the film is done you can crack on with your Christmas shopping!
  2. Visit Edinburgh Christmas Market on one of our Express services and grab yourself a gluhwein or a mulled cider and enjoy a few of the many fairground rides.
  3. Discover Arbroath using service X7 and enjoy a Jammie Dodger scone and a festive hot chocolate at Vin-Tealicious before exploring the boutiques and shops at Westport Village.
  4. Zoom to Dundee on service X7, X26 or any of our local services and stock up on socks at Primark or maybe even invest in a novelty Christmas jumper
  5. Visit Stonehaven on service X7 and enjoy some of the tasty Christmas specials at the Old Pier Coffee House.
  6. Take a trip to Perth and make a splash at the Perth Leisure Pool - there's even a heated outdoor pool area for the brave! Express services X56 and X7 serve Perth, as do many of our local services.
  7. Visit Dunfermline on service X55, X24, X26, X27 or one of our local services and explore small independent shops hidden along the high street and the Historic Quarter.
  8. St Andrews is full of festive surprises - why not drop in past Toppings & Co and pick up a new book to read? Services 99, X24 and local services can get you there!
  9. Take an Express coach to Glasgow, buy 5 Krispy Kreme donuts and share them with your mates
  10. If your Christmas shopping is already done and dusted, head to Cupar on service X54 and visit the Scottish Deer Centre. 
  11. Climb on an X7 and explore Aberdeen's Christmas offering - including a magical market and loads of shops!
