Xplore Dundee is proud of its poppies

Xplore Dundee is joining with thousands of people across the country in remembering those who have given their lives to secure and protect our freedom.

This year, the bus operator is showing its support for Remembrance Day by displaying poppies on all of its vehicles. 

Drivers will observe the Two Minute Silence on Armistice Day, Saturday 11th November at 11am and again on Remembrance Sunday.  Passengers should expect a brief pause in their journey as drivers will safely pull over their vehicles and stop to allow employees and members of the public to take part in this national moment of reflection. 

Elsie Turbyne, Managing Director of Xplore Dundee, said: “We hold a two minute silence on our buses every Remembrance Day to honour the brave men and women who fought for our country.  All drivers are requested to pull over for two minutes, when safe to do so, before continuing with their journey.  We hope our customers will join us in observing this silence and paying our respects."

Xplore Dundee is also offering free bus travel to war veterans and army cadets collecting for the annual Poppyscotland appeal this weekend.

Young people from the Sea Cadets, Army Cadets and Air Training Corps plus a number of other volunteers will be travelling around the city as part of the annual fundraising drive on Saturday 11th November.  The bus operator has arranged to transport the charity’s collectors around its network for free on that day, as they collect donations.
