On Sunday 22 October, we will be introducing some improvements to our network. These changes (outlined below) come following months of public consultation.
We continually review the performance of routes and timetables and we consider the feedback we gather from community meetings, comments online and suggestions submitted to our Travel Centre.
We take very seriously our role as the city's main transport provider. Every day, we take thousands of Dundonians to work, school, the shops - and everywhere in between. We're proud to be your local link.
✔️ Service 1b will be re-routed via Byron Street (instead of Strathmore Avenue). This will provide a daytime service every 20 minutes, with buses running from early morning until late at night. Service 1a will maintain a 20 minute service on Strathmore Avenue for Kings Cross Hospital.
✔️ Service 5 will be re-routed via Perth Road and Tom MacDonald Avenue (instead of Glamis Road and Dickson Avenue). This is to restore reliability.
✔️ Services 9a/10a will run through the Technology Park in the evening (as services 9/10 do during the day, instead of Spey Drive and Mallaig Avenue) to provide a simplified and consistent route for commuters.
✖️ Service 14 will be withdrawn due to unsustainably low passenger numbers. Alternative connections will be available with our core high-frequency network.
✖️ Current off-peak services 23/23a/23b and 27 will be withdrawn, with some elements being replaced by new services 4 and 23 (see below).
✔️ Service 29 will no longer run a minor detour via the Technology Park after 8pm. Services 9a/10a will provide this connection.
✔️ There will be no major changes to services 15/17, 18, 22, 28 or 32/33 - (although service 22a will see an additional journey to Strathmartine Hospital at 2310, and special consultation will be soon be underway to assess means of improving reliability for services 32/33).
✔️ New service 4 will be introduced, operating every hour between school times. The route will connect the Logie Estate, Kilberry Street and Dryburgh with amenities in the City Centre, Perth Road and Lochee.
✔️ A simplified service 23 will be introduced, operating every hour between school times (with some early morning and late afternoon journeys in addition). The route will connect Carmichael Street, Woodside and Downfield to the City Centre, Kirkton ASDA and doctors' surgeries in Stobswell.
Timetables and further information will be available on our website and from our Travel Centre during the October holidays.
