Dundee

Study & Save

Around 1 in 5 people who live in Dundee are students. They're either enrolled at one of our world-class universities, or they're
registered with the excellent D&A College. So, to help them get the best bang for their borrowed bucks, we offer cut-price bus
travel across our network. That means students attend class, get to placements and nip into town on as many buses as they
like - all while saving money.

Plus: prices have been frozen from last year, and there are ​ double discounts available on our mTicket app. There’s no
restriction on age, either. All students need to do is show their matriculation card (with a photo and visible expiry date) and
they’ll be on their way!

We offer a flexible range of products to suit a variety of travel needs and save students money. Check out our full selection
below, and you’ll ​ never spend more than you need to​ .
It’s no big deal. Just small prices.

Single Journeys & Bundles

Cash single fares on-bus are like a pay-as-you-go option. As a student, the price of a single journey is calculated based on both your age, and the distance you are travelling: Short Hops are valid for up to one fare stage; Max Singles are valid for two fare stages or more. Using a trip from a 10-Journey Bundle is not restricted by distance - they are valid for any journey, anywhere, as long as you’re on one bus.

To comply with regulations set out by the Scottish Government, young people (16-18) must produce their ​ Young Scot card in order to purchase a cash single fare on-bus. It needs to placed on the ticket machine reader and authenticated before a ticket can be issued.

Buy now. Travel later.

Even if you only travel with us occasionally, there are still savings to be had. Save up to £1 per trip with a 10 Journey Bundle. This flexible product has no expiry date - just use it when you need it!

We have an exact fare policy on-bus, meaning our drivers cannot give change. This is both for security reasons and to ensure
boarding is faster. If purchasing a ticket on-bus, please make sure you have the correct money. Cheaper cashless options are
available on our mTicket app, and change can be given when you make a purchase in our Travel Centre.

Special-rate single fares are charged on services 57a/59 | 73b | 137/138 | 139, as we operate them under Council contracts.

Get ID Ready

We believe in a ‘fare’ deal. That's why we offer discounted travel for U19s & students in Dundee. But we can only sustain this if
you work with us to prevent fraudulent misuse. So, if you're eligible to save, great! We just need your help to verify that...
To keep things simple, we're only asking for forms of ID that are freely available: for students, that means a college- or
university-issued matriculation card. A photo and the expiry date must be displayed.

ID is no longer just requested at the point of purchasing tickets; it is now needed for ALL journeys. That way, whether you're
travelling with a paper pass or an mTicket, there will be no doubt that you're entitled to use it. So make sure you're ID-ready ...
or you’ll need to get your running shoes on.

FAQ's - Student bus pass

Do I need ID?

Yes. If you are a student (of any age) you are required to present your college- or university-issued matriculation card as proof
of eligibility. A photograph and the expiry date must be visible. Without it, Student tickets cannot be purchased and are not valid
for travel.

I have a Young Scot card. Does this entitle me to discounted travel?

Not necessarily. Young Scot cards are usable for various other purposes until the card-holder turns 25. But it is only recognised
as eligibility for discounted bus travel until the card-holder turns 19. U19 Smart-card products can only be added to a Young
Scot card, and can only be added to those held by people aged 19 and under. Outwith these parameters, it will not top-up.

Are all tickets available to buy on-bus?

Almost. Your driver can issue all multi-journey tickets as a smart-card product ([find out more about MyXplore here]), and most
are available as paper tickets too. Monthly direct debits must be applied for separately, either [online] or by picking up a form
from our Travel Centre. Date-stamped TravelCards are also available from our Travel Centre.

Can I still buy student tickets during the holidays?

Yes. You can buy and use student tickets at any time, as long as your matriculation card is still valid.

Can I buy tickets in advance?

Advance products are available from our Travel Centre, but tickets bought on-bus take effect from the date of purchase. If you
purchase mTickets in-bulk on our app, the first one will take effect from the date of purchase and the rest will be stored in your
Ticket Wallet; single journeys also remain in your Ticket Wallet for up to 90 days until activation. Bear in mind that your
matriculation card must still be valid on the dates you wish to use an advance-ticket.

My ticket has expired. What should I do?

mTickets, smart-cards and paper tickets (with QR codes) automatically expire, meaning they will not be recognised as valid for
travel. Under no circumstances should you attempt to board a bus with an out-of-date paper ticket. If you do, it will be withdrawn
by the driver for fraudulent use. If your ticket is out of date, pay a single fare and renew your pass when you can.

What happens at Christmas & New Year?

As we do not operate any buses on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day, we provide an additional day’s worth of travel to
passengers with multi-day tickets - provided the period of validity includes either/both of those dates. This can be claimed free
of charge at our Travel Centre. The only exception applies to ABC tickets; to ensure consistency with the policy of other
participating operators, an additional day is not offered.

Who can use my ticket?

Only you. No matter what format (whether paper, smart-card or mTicket) tickets are non-transferrable and cannot be used by
other family members or friends. Any breach of this rule may result in the your ticket being withdrawn and you may be liable to a
penalty fare of £25.

Can I use my pass anywhere else?

Our tickets are only valid for use on services operated by Xplore Dundee. The exception to this is the ABC multi-operator
product, which can be used on all bus companies in Dundee and the surrounding areas. [Check out this map] to see where the
ABC zone boundaries lie.

Please note: multi-journey fares are only valid on services 57a/59 (weekend evening journeys operated by Xplore Dundee) as
far as the last stop in Muirhead. The EveningSaver, however, is valid for the full routes to Blairgowrie and Perth.
