All Aboard the Easter Egg-spress!

24th March 2016

Xplore Dundee is operating a free shuttle bus to the Fun Day at Camperdown Park this Easter Sunday (27 March 2016).

The egg-stra special service will run every half an hour during the event’s opening hours of 12-4pm. Passengers will be able to board at High Street, Commercial Street and Ward Road. The pick up/drop off point for the bus at Camperdown will be Smeaton Road, at the south end of the park. 

Customers on board the ‘Easter Egg-spress’ will have the chance to get their hands on one of 100 free Easter eggs being given away on the day by the bus company – first come, first served!

To celebrate the spring season, the bus operator is also running a ‘Design Your Own Egg’ competition for kids. Entry forms are found on the company’s website and can be posted to the Xplore Dundee depot or handed in to the Travel Shop in Commercial Street. The closing date is Sunday 10 April and the winners of each of three age groups will get an Easter goodie bag. 

Managing Director Elsie Turbyne said:

“Don’t let queues and car parking charges spoil your Easter fun this weekend – catch our Easter Egg-spress to Camperdown Park and join in what is sure to be a great family event.

“I hope our younger customers will also enjoy entering our Easter colouring competition – I’m looking forward to seeing the work of Dundee’s creative kids!”

The Easter Fun Day runs from 12-4pm at Camperdown Park, is free to attend (car parking £3) and will feature aerial acrobatics, street soccer, a circus workshop and a sheep show.
