Managing Director Elsie Turbyne said:

“We are continuing to mark our anniversary of becoming part of the National Express Group 20 years ago in 1997 and decided it would be a good idea to let the rest of the city join in the celebrations!

“We’re looking forward to displaying some vintage vehicles belonging to Dundee Museum of Transport alongside some from our own fleet and we’re also working with our partners, including the McManus and

Dundee Science Centre, to provide plenty of kids activities throughout the day, as well as music and refreshments.

“This is your chance to take a closer look inside our garage and speak to the team who keep your buses running day in, day out. We hope to see you there on Saturday!”

Entry to the event is free and there will also be a free shuttle bus operating between the garage and the city centre every 20 minutes.
