Single trips & day tickets

cash on the bus

Our single journey fares are available to buy on-bus, and your fare is calculated based on the distance of your journey. 

Each route in our network is divided into multiple fare stages – travelling within the extent of one stage would incur a Short Hop fare, whereas travelling between multiple stages would incur a Max Single fare.

The easiest way to find out how much your journey will cost is to ask the driver. Simply state your destination and your driver will tell you the fare required.

If you are making more than one journey per day, you may find it easier and more cost-effective to purchase a Daysaver, which is valid for travel all day on all services in the Xplore Dundee network (on the date of purchase).

*Concessionary travel for young people: the Scotland-wide concessionary travel scheme for young people entitles all 16-18 year olds and young full time volunteers up to the age of 25 to discounted travel on buses, trains & ferries throughout Scotland. The scheme provides a third off travel fares – although the discount for 16-18 year olds is already embedded in Xplore Dundee’s own young persons’ fares. For young volunteers aged up to 25, to get your concession card, you can get in touch with YoungScot by calling 0808 801 0338 (open 12.00 to 20.00), by e-mailing or by visiting
