Student Tickets

Fares Freeze for 2021

We are freezing our fares in 2021, meaning you won’t pay a penny more to board your local bus. It is important to us that bus travel is affordable and accessible for everyone.

Smart Ways to Pay

 

 

  • Top-up a smartcard - it’s simple, speedy and secure

 

  • If you are paying with cash, there is an exact fare policy on the bus, meaning our drivers cannot give change. This is for speed, simplicity and security.

Single Journeys

Single fares on the bus are like a pay-as-you go option if you don’t travel often. Check out the 10-TripSaver to save money on infrequent travel.

 

The UniHop is a special ticket which lets students travel one-way for £1.50 on services 5 | 9/10 | 17 | 22 anywhere between the City Centre and Ninewells Hospital (including the University of Dundee and halls of residence). Buy on the bus from the driver (or on the Xplore Dundee app).

 

The price of a regular single journey is calculated based on the distance you are travelling on one bus: Short Hops are valid for up to one fare stage, and Max Singles are valid for two or more fare stages. Buy on the bus from the driver (or on the Xplore Dundee app). Prices vary depending on your age bracket.

 

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