The opening of a number of new shops at Dundee's Stack Leisure Park has had a positive effect on passenger numbers for local bus operator National Express Dundee.
The recently re-launched Outer Circle serves the Lochee shopping centre, while the 1A and 1B also connect people in St Mary's, Ardler and the Hilltown with Stack.
Now that interiors store The Range has followed the recent opening of Aldi and Home Bargains, National Express has noted an increase of just over 3%, as customers use its services to visit the repopulated shopping centre.
National Express Dundee Managing Director, Phil Smith said: "I'm pleased to see the re-generation of this area - the new shopping centre at Stack Leisure Park is clearly breathing new life into Lochee. I welcome the fact that customers are choosing to visit the new stores there by bus, and would encourage more people to do so.
"The area is well served by the Outer Circle, 1A and 1B, which makes catching the bus to Stack Leisure Park an easy and cost-efficient way of doing some early Christmas shopping."
