Dundee’s main bus operator, Xplore Dundee is relaunching its smartcard. From today (2 January 2017) the Discovr card will gradually be replaced by the MyXplore card. This smart ticket will have a fresh, new look and will continue to offer the same security and savings of the Discovr card.
Customers buying a smartcard will be able to load it with an adult weekly ticket which is 80p cheaper than the paper equivalent; students also benefit from paying 50p less for a student weekly with the MyXplore card (or a valid National Entitlement Card) than those choosing a paper ticket.
If a passenger loses or damages their smartcard Xplore Dundee can issue a replacement with the remainder of travel included - meaning customers never lose out.
Discovr cards will continue to be valid for topping up - although anyone is welcome to swap it (free of charge) for a more up-to-date MyXplore card. New or replacement cards must be registered at the Travel Centre and they can then be topped up on the bus.
