National Express Dundee is urging local people not to risk the new drink-drive limit this Christmas and New Year and to take the bus when planning their celebrations.
Scotland’s new drink drive limit has come into force today and will mean that just one pint or a glass of wine could make it illegal for drivers to get behind the wheel.
Managing Director Phil Smith said:
“We are in support of measures aimed at making Scotland’s roads safer, such as the lowering of the alcohol limit, and we would encourage people not to risk falling foul of this new law and losing their licence. Our bus network extends right across Dundee and we operate regular services in and out of the city centre. If you’re planning your Christmas shopping trip, a work night out or a party with friends, let us do the driving and leave your car at home.
“You can save money by taking the bus too – many of our tickets are cheaper than parking in the city centre or taking a taxi and we will soon see the return of our popular Kids for a Quid promotion, in time for the Christmas holidays, which will mean discounts for under-16s travelling with a Scottish concession pass holder."
National Express Dundee’s festive timetables are now available and provide information on changes to services during the Bank Holidays on 24th, 26th and 31st December, as well as the 2nd January. Customers should note that there will be no buses in service on Christmas Day and New Years’ Day. There will also be limited opening hours across the festive period for the Travel Shop in Commercial Street.
More information on the festive timetables and tickets are available online here and at the Travel Shop in the city centre.
