After a customer consultation, Xplore Dundee is introducing a new daytime bus service targeted at elderly passengers.

Service 4 will operate from the city centre to Dryburgh every hour between school times and will connect the Logie Estate, Kilberry Street and Dryburgh to amenities in the City Centre, Perth Road and Lochee.

Xplore Dundee Managing Director, Elsie Turbyne, said: “We’ve been listening carefully to what people in this area have been telling us about their transport needs and we’re introducing Service 4 to ensure the area’s elderly residents have more options to travel, during off-peak times, to the shops or to visit friends and family.

“We will continue to monitor the performance of all our routes as well as feedback from our customers once the new timetables are in place. I hope people across the city will enjoy an even more reliable and accessible bus service as a result of these changes.”

Changes have also been made to the 5, 9a/10a and 29 services, while the 14, 23/23a/23b and 27 services have been withdrawn, with some elements replaced by the new service and a simplified service 23 operating every hour between school times.
