A school holiday bus scheme helping families with young children get out and about relaunches tomorrow.
Dundee City Council has teamed up with the city’s three bus operators to offer a 20p fare to children.
The only criteria is that they are travelling with an adult fare-payer or concession ticket holder (including bus passes).
Launched last year, the initiative, running from Saturday until October 21, has led to significant increases in the number of bus journeys taken by young people.
Lynne Short, convener of the council’s city development committee, said: “This is a great scheme that really helps hard-pressed families in every part of the city.
“We have brought back the 20p fare with the help of our partners in the bus companies because it has made a difference to the lives of bairns and by making free places like the V&A Dundee, The McManus, Broughty Castle and the Discovery Walk accessible.”
Covering all journeys in the ABC Dundee ticket zone, the scheme is backed by Smarter Choices Smarter Places, the council, Xplore Dundee, Stagecoach and Moffat and Williamson.
