Xplore Dundee celebrates Road Bridge anniversary

Friday 19th August 2016

Today, Xplore Dundee buses regularly travel across to Fife during term time to transport schoolchildren from Tayport, Newport and Wormit to Madras College in St Andrews. 

Managing Director Elsie Turbyne said: “The Tay Road Bridge is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Dundee, and a vital part of the transport infrastructure of the city and its surrounding area. 

“Xplore Dundee is looking forward to helping celebrate the bridge’s 50th anniversary and I would encourage everyone to come along and see our Corporation Bus on Sunday, and enjoy all the other activities on offer.”

Every service operated by Xplore Dundee on a Sunday runs into Dundee city centre, making it easy and great value to travel to the Road Bridge anniversary celebrations by bus.
