An additional short-notice change applied from Saturday 5th December 2009, to National Express Dundee Services 32, 32B, 33, 33A. When the timetable was registered to start in October (nominally to change the public holiday service), the Saturday journeys via the Pensions Office/Claverhouse East Business Park, Jack Martin Way, were not all included (I thought this was initally in error, hence it was not mentioned as a change to the Saturday service here). From this date, the main service to Fintry does not change, but there will be a service via the Pensions Office until about 1400 on Saturdays. Get the new timetable here.
From Monday 7th December 2009, Stagecoach Fife Service X54 will be retimed on morning southbound journeys between Ferrytoll Park & Ride and Edinburgh. New timetable can be had here.

The Fishers Tours website makes no mention of changes to the services for this year, so no further details yet. Updated - these six services have been withdrawn with effect from 31st January 2010. This follows a public enquiry by the Traffic Commissoner, following problems in operating the Scottish Express network earlier in 2009. These will not be re-registered, as the operator's licence has been restricted. (Source - transcript of the enquiry distributed by NDS). Updated yet later - all services will continue without change. New timetables for all these routes have been updated below, which includes the dates of operation of these services for 2010. Updated even later - the operator has been given permission to continue operation of these services without change, pending an appeal to the Transport Tribunual, due for late March 2010.

Both buses will then follow the same route via Strathern Road and Broughty Ferry Town Centre. Dundee Road (formerly covered by the 8X) will still be covered by Strathtay Service 75. UPDATE - I did not notice from the inital bundle of paperwork and leaflets, but Service 5A maintains the links to the south side of Greendykes Road, previously covered by Services 7/8.
Services 9/10/11/12 – Outer Circle
These services are withdrawn in their entity – see 5A/5B, 6, 9S/10S, 11/12, 14/14A, 25/25A/26/26A for replacements.
New Service 9S, 10S – Ninewells Hospital – St Pauls Academy
The morning Service 9S is a replacement for the 08.08 Service 9A between the same points, but retimed slightly – now leaving at 08.05. The afternoon 10S starts from St Pauls Academy at 15.35, as a replacement for the similarly-timed Service 10A. An additional 10S will also operate, leaving St Johns High School at 15.32 to Ninewells Hospital. Services 9S and 10S operate on schooldays only.
New Service 11 – City Centre – Perth Road – Blackness Avenue – Pentland Avenue – Tullideph Road –Glamis Road – Elmwood Road – Charleston Drive – Ninewells Hospital
New Services 12 – in reverse of above
Provides a replacement for a quarter of the 11/12 version of the Outer Circle service. Runs half-hourly, off peak, Monday to Friday only. Peak and Saturday/Sunday links not replaced.
Service 14 – Ethiebeaton Park – Douglas – Clepington Road - Ninewells Hospital
Firstly, this service is substantially revised, to replace Services 7/8 and other withdrawn services i.e. 9/10/11/12. The section of route between Ethiebeaton Park and Baldovie Road/Sainsbury’s Claypotts is withdrawn, following poor usage. Passengers in Panmurefield will be able to use Stagecoach Strathtay Service 39 via the bus shelters on the A92, or walk through to Barnhill, where new bus stops will be provided for the 5A/5B, 25/25A and 26/26A. Ethiebeaton Park is served by Stagecoach Strathtay Services 39, 75, 79A/79C to/from Dundee City Centre. Right, fancy some good news? Well, the 14 off-peak is back to a bus every 30 minutes, Monday to Friday. The route will now start at Sainsbury’s bus stance (once again!), before running via Balunie Avenue, Ballindean Road, Longtown Road at Asda, then Longtown Street, Happyhillock Road, Pitkerro Road, Kingsway East, Forfar Road, before rejoining Clepington Road near Maryfield. The service will then follow the existing 14 route to/from Ninewells Hospital, but will double-run into Kingsway West Retail Park (once again!). However, Service 14 will not enter the retail park from the first Saturday in December, until the second Saturday in January. The Saturday and Sunday Service 14 will run as Service 14A, starting at Broughty Ferry, Fort Street, via Forthill Road, Nursery Road, Strathmore Street. North Balmossie Street, Balgillo Road, Claypotts Junction, Sainsbury’s, then as per weekday.
Service 15/17 – Whitfield – City Centre – Ninewells Hospital – Tesco Extra, South Road
Minor timing changes. Some Service 15 journeys extend to/from Courthouse Square in the City Centre. Service 17 journeys will run between Whitfield and Ninewells Hospital during evenings and all day on Sundays, with the section to Tesco Extra withdrawn (but see 25/25A/26/26A). In addition, the evening/Sunday Service 17 journeys will not serve Peebles Drive.
Service 17S – Whitfield – Claverhouse – St Paul’s Academy
Services 18/19/21 – Kirkton – City Centre
No changes to the main Services 18, 19 and 21 (leaflet reprinted), but a new schoolday only Service 21S variation will leave Commercial Street in the City Centre at 08.25, heading for Dundee College, Kingsway Campus.
Service 22 – Downfield – City Centre – Blackness Road – Ninewells Hospital
Service 22A – 22/22C journeys that end in the City Centre
Service 22C – Craigowl View – Downfield – City Centre – Blackness Road – Ninewells Hospital
Service 22C number dropped, all buses now show 22 or 22A. Service extended to run further into Craigowl View, via a series of roads that are all part of St Martin Avenue. Service frequency to Craigowl View increased, Monday to Friday, with a bus every 7-8 minutes during the day. However, many of these will run as Service 22A to the City Centre only. The section towards Ninewells Hospital is reduced to every 10 minutes to “reduce overcrowding”. (???). Saturday and Sunday service remains as now, but the new route in Craigowl will be followed by relevant journeys i.e every hour Sunday, half hour Saturday.
Service 22B – Barns of Claverhouse – Downfield - City Centre - Harris Academy
Renumbered 22S. Buses still depart at the same times from each end, but the Claverhouse terminus is now at Mill O’ Mains Primary School.
Service 23/24 – City Centre – Woodside & Fleming Gardens Circular
Service revised substantially. The Barnes Avenue and Fleming Gardens sections will be replaced by the new Services 3 & 3A. Service 23 will be revised to run off-peak every 40 minutes (see 21, 21S for peak services) from the City Centre via Victoria Road, Stobswell, Dundonald Street, Court Street, Sandeman Street, Arklay Street, Clepington Road, Graham Street, a one-way loop around Woodside, before returning back to Stobswell, then onto the City via Albert Street. Service 24 number is thus discontinued.
New Service 25/25A/26/26A – Ninewells Hospital – Lochee – St Marys – Kirkton – Whitfield – Douglas (26/26A) or Gotterstone (25/25A) – Broughty Ferry (Queen Street Service 25/26, Fort Street 25/25A)
This service is intended to replace many of the links previously provided by the Outer Circular (school links will also be provided by new 9S/10S). However, the new route is a bit more unified than the previous services. The route starts at Ninewells Hospital via the Medipark, Technology Park, South Road, Buttars Loan, Liff Road, Coupar Angus Road (stopping at Camperdown Gate for the Leisure Park but all day), Faraday Street, Telford Road, Staffa Place, Macalpine Road (thus by-passing most of St Marys), right into Laird Street, Strathmartine Road, Balgowan Avneue, Derwent Avenue/Asda, Gillburn Road, Old Glamis Road, Claverhouse Road (makes no mention here of the Claverhouse bus stance), Forfar Road, Claverhouse East Business Park i.e. The Pensions Service/Jack Martin Way (25/26 only), back to Fintry Drive, Whitfield Shops, Drumgeith Road to the former St Saviours School. Service 25/25A will then run via Douglas Road, Arbroath Road (passing Gotterstone and the back of the Northern College) to Claypotts/Sainsburys, while Service 26/26A runs via Douglas Road, Ballindean Road, Balunie Avenue, Baldovie Road, to Sainsbury’s. Monday to Friday daytime Services 25 and 26 will then run in a one-way loop via Balgillo Road, Strathmore Street, Fort Street, Queen Street and Claypotts Road, whereas Services 25A and 26A will run via Balgillo Road, Strathmore Street, Fort Street and Broughty Ferry town centre in both directions. Service runs every half hour, with alternate 25/26’s during the day.
Service 28/28A/29/29A – Douglas – City Centre – Lochee – Charleston loops
Minor changes, with some additional journeys during peak times.
Service 28S - Douglas - Claverhouse - St Pauls Academy
No changes to this service.
Service 30/31/51 – Invergowrie/City Centre – Liff/Birkhill – Fowlis
Revised route within Invergowrie – runs around Greystane Road, Mill Road, Main Street, but then via Mylnfield Road (not Errol Road), Dargie Road (new), Station Road (top end – not currently served by bus, Burnside Road (not currently served by bus). No change to Sunday service, operated by Stagecoach Strathtay.
Services 32/32B/33/33A – City Centre – Forfar Road – Fintry Shops – Fintry
Revised timetable Monday-Saturday, with buses running every 9-11 minutes off peak, instead of every 7-8 minutes.
Services 36/36C – City Centre – Mid Craigie – Linlathen – Claverhouse
Additional journey from the City Centre to Claverhouse at 17.50. No change to any others.
Services 98A/98B – Peep O’ Day Lane (for Gallagher Retail Park) – City Centre – City Quay
Services are renumbered 43/44/45/45A, with timetable and routing changes.
Changes were introduced to various National Express Dundee school services on Friday 9th July 2010. As this was the last day of term, this may only be a paper excercise. Certainly the operator has not mentioned any changes to these routes.
From Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th July, Stagecoach will be operating additional journeys on Services 99/99A/99B/99C (Dundee Bus Station - St Andrews), as well as Service 96/96A (Ninewells Hospital - St Andrews) south of the Tay. Click here for the special timetable, which should be used in conjunction with the current 96/96A timetable or current 99/99A/99B/99C timetable. For the full timetables on any of the services not serving Dundee, visit the Stagecoach website.
Stagecoach in Fife Service 91 (St Andrews - Strathkinness - Leuchars, for Dundee) will be withdrawn, after operating for the last time on Saturday 17th July 2010.
Apologies for the lack of updates over the last five weeks. This spell was also when I was moving to a new computer at home, working on the launch of a new bus service for the day job, then holiday, then my father's death, then I picked up a bug! Now recovering, and catching up with the reccent developments.
From Monday 23rd August 2010 for up to 12 weeks, a temporary diversion applies to journeys in Mill O' Mains i.e. Services 32B and 36. Buses will enter Mill O' Mains via Eriskay Drive, turning right onto Hebrides Drive as now. On Hebrides Drive, the bus will only serve the bus stop outside the shops. From there, the bus will turn right, then left back onto Forfar Road, up to the roundabout at Fintry Drive, back down to the traffic lights at Claverhouse Road and Fountainbleau Drive, then
following normal line of route.
A new Dundee City Bus Network Map is now online, correct to June 2010. This includes both National Express and Stagecoach services. Also now online is a National Express Dundee services only Bus Network Map.
Fishers Tours update - a further appeal to the Transport Tribunal has been rejected. However, it is understood that the case is not over.
UPDATED - the company have announced that services will operate as usual, pending a further appeal to the Court of Session.
A very short notice change was applied from Sunday 25th July 2010 to National Express Dundee Service 5A/5B (Barnhill - Ninewells Hospital). Some buses will now run via Broughty Ferry Queen Street as opposed to running into the central area. A new timetable can be had here.
From Monday 16th August 2010, a new timetable will be introduced on Stagecoach Express Service X54 (Dundee Bus Station - Edinburgh). The only change is the introduction of a new Monday-Friday journey from Edinburgh to Dunfermline at 0835. A new timetable can be had now. Further Stagecoach changes from this date were...
Service 20 (Kirriemuir – Forfar – Dundee) The 07.25 Dundee to Kirriemuir and 08.25 Kirriemuir to Dundee Monday to Friday journeys will be retimed slightly between Forfar and Kirriemuir to help improve reliability. A new timetable can be had now.
Service 21A (Forfar – Brechin – Stracathro Hospital) A revised timetable will be introduced, with most journeys operating via Brechin Castle Centre during the daytime Monday to Saturday. There will be no change to the Sunday timetable. A new timetable can be had now.
Service 27 (Forfar – Friockheim – Arbroath) Mon-Fri 09.16, 12.11 27E from Letham, Blairs Road to Forfar, and 11.30 27E Forfar Tesco – Letham, now pass from Stagecoach Strathtay to Travel Wishart. There is a new 09.00 from Forfar, East High Street to Letham, as a result. A new timetable can be had now.
From Monday 23rd August 2010 (not 30th as I originally put) , JP Mini Coaches will operate a new timetable on Service 81 (Carnoustie - Forfar). The afternoon bus from Monifieth to Forfar will now start from Carnoustie, thus running later throughout. A new timetable can be had now.
National Express Dundee will operate special Service 53 between Dundee City Centre and Camperdown Country Park (for Dundee Flower & Food Festival) on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September 2010. The timetable will be different from last year. A new timetable can be had now.
Wednesday 27th October - added a few new maps (see below) and corrected some links.
Sunday 24th October - I have uploaded some additional service timetables and information, such as transport maps for Angus transport network, Fife transport network, the Megabus.com network, the new National Express Dundee network map, and Perth & Kinross transport network, the Carse & Scone Local Public Transport Guide (all buses in Invergowrie, Kingoodie, Longforgan and Scone), plus timetables for a few connecting routes (AirDirect747, Perth Broxden Park + Ride - City Centre Service 301) as well as a guide giving travel options for staff at Aviva, Perth. I have also replaced the timetables for cross-border Megabus services M11 (to Manchester, Birmingham and London) and M20 (to Newcastle, Scotch Corner, Woolley Edge and and Sheffield Meadowhall), and these are now online. Note that these are valid until further notice. Also see the new Megabus M17 which also provides links to/from Edinburgh via Manchester.
I now also have timetables for Services 57 and 28S changes (see below), as well as an updated edition of the new 333 leaflet (with the front cover bits including fares and operator contact details).
From Monday 4th October 2010, a number of changes will be introduced on Citylink/Megabus/Parks of Hamilton services. You can now download timetables for Aberdeen-Dundee-Perth-Edinburgh or Aberdeen-Dundee-Perth-Stirling-Glasgow or Dundee-Perth-Pitlochry-Aviemore-Inverness.
From Monday 25th October 2010, a number of changes will be introduced on cross-border bus services into Perthshire.
Service 16/16A/16B (Dundee – Longforgan – Inchture – Perth) In order to help improve reliability, a revised timetable will be introduced and most journeys will no longer serve Perth bus station, operating to Canal Street and departing from South Street. Seagate bus station in Dundee will continue to be served and buses will generally depart the bus station around 5 minutes earlier than at present.
Service 57 (Dundee - Blairgowrie - Perth) The 06.50 Monday to Friday journey from Dundee bus station to Perth Aviva will no longer operate via Perth bus station. Passengers for the city centre will be able to alight on York Place at Perth Central Library. Timetable now online.
Service 333 (PRI - Ninewells Hospital) The service has been revised and will now include Inchture (Road End) as a stopping point. Fares have also been revised from this date.
From Sunday 7th November 2010, National Express Dundee have registered a few changes to the network, following feedback from passengers. See the new National Express Network map for the new network at a glance.
Service 3/3A (City Centre – Infirmary Brae or Gardner Street – Caird Avenue – Fleming Gardens) Not mentioned in the National Express Dundee press releases or service changes flyer, but this route will change. Firstly, the Sunday service is removed. Monday-Friday early and morning peak service withdrawn, with a journey leaving Union Street on the 3 loop at 08.08 during school holidays only. Most daytime journeys are 12 minutes earlier. Saturday service now starts at 08.57, not 07.30, but no change to times after that.
Service 5A/5B (Ninewells Hospital – Perth Road or Airport – City Centre – Greendykes Road or Dundee Road – Strathern Road – Broughty Ferry Queen Street or town centre - Forthill/Balgillo/Barnhill) Service revised substantially. All buses will now run via Perth Road, Greendykes Road, and Broughty Ferry Queen Street – for alternative buses along Riverside Drive (but not entering the Airport complex) see revised 14A, 14C and existing Stagecoach service X42. Service now displays 5 and runs every 15 minutes, six days a week i.e. every 30 minutes on Sundays (and every evening). Route serves the Technology Park on all directions, both ways, and Gowrie Park (not to be confused with Gowriehill in the NXD changes leaflet and press release). Interestingly, there will be no direct replacement for buses in central Broughty Ferry i.e. Brook Street, King Street, Gray Street and Fort Street, but Stagecoach services 69 and 88 provide alternative links. Short journeys from Ninewells Hospital to the City Centre will display 5B, but operate via the 5 route i.e. Perth Road, not Riverside. If that’s confusing, the short journeys from Forthill to the City Centre will be numbered 5A, although running via the 5 route i.e. Greendykes Road.
Service 6 (City Centre – Blackness Avenue – Dickson Avenue – Ninewells Hospital) This service has been withdrawn. A replacement along Blackness Avenue will be provided by the new 26, but this will have no evening or Sunday service. Dickson Avenue will still be covered by the 22 and 73.
Service 11, 12 (City Centre – Blackness Avenue – Pentland Avenue – Elmwood Road – Ninewells Hospital) Service withdrawn. A replacement will be provided by the new 26, but this will have no evening or Sunday service. It will provide a Saturday (and public holiday) service therefore.
Service 14, 14A (Ninewells Hospital – Clepington Road – Sainsbury’s Claypotts, then 14A to/from Broughty Ferry) Service also revised substantially. Between South Road and Harefield Road Roundabout, all buses will now run via Craigowan Road, Charleston Road, Balgartho Road, Brownhill Road, Buttars Road, Buttars Loan and Liff Road. Service 14 will be the Monday to Friday service, with certain journeys extended to/from Riverside Drive and Dundee City Centre, for crew change purposes, but running in public service. Unlike the (to-be-withdrawn) 5B, they will not enter the Airport complex. These journeys will be numbered 14A. The existing Saturday and Sunday 14A (to/from Broughty Ferry) will be renumbered 14C (if it starts from the City Centre via Riverside) or 14B (if not). The “new” 14B/14C will now start/end at Queen Street Broughty Ferry, running both ways the same i.e. West Queen Street, Queen Street, Fort Street, Forthill Road, Nursery Road, Strathmore Street, North Balmossie Street, Balgillo Road, Claypotts etc. Service will once again operate into Kingsway West Retail Park, except, not from the first Saturday in December until the second Saturday in January, and will stop outside on Clepington Road. Timetable remains broadly the same as now, but the 07.40 from Ninewells Monday-Friday will leave 10 minutes earlier, getting to Sainsbury’s Claypotts 9 minutes earlier. Some morning peak buses from Claypotts will leave earlier and depart later in the afternoon.
Service 15/17 (Whitfield – Pitkerro Road - City Centre – Ninewells Hospital – Technology Park – South Road Tesco) Following feedback from one of the West End ward councillors, there is a new 05.30 17 from Whitehall Street to Ninewells Hospital, Monday to Friday only. 06.34 ex Whitfield 17 now leaves at 06.35, but that is the only other change I have spotted. Also, the Sunday timetable appears to be gaining an extra bus to improve reliability, so longer (but more realistic) journey times will now apply during the day on Sundays. Buses still run every 30 minutes on Sundays.
Service 21S (Morning peak bus from City Centre to Old Glamis Road College) Service withdrawn – no change to the main 18/19/21 service.
Service 22/22A (Craigowl View – Downfield – Strathmartine Road – City Centre – Blackness Road – Ninewells Hospital) Route revised, now dropping the controversial extension around Craigowl View. All buses will now start/end at St Martin Avenue. However, the Monday-Friday daytime service moves from a slightly higgledy piggeldy pile of journeys ending in town, to a “frequent service” – this means a bus at least every 10 minuets, but can be more often, thus not following the same minutes past each hour, in some cases). I presume these will all be running in service through end-to-end. The operator mentions a bus every 8 minutes on the service changes leaflet, but this is not confirmed. The number 22A will only be used by short workings from Craigowl/Downfield to the City Centre, with 22B being used for short 22’s from Ninewells Hospital to the City Centre instead.
Service 23 (City Centre – Woodside) This Monday-Friday service is now officially Hail & Ride on streets without bus stops. Additional school holiday journey at 08.15 from High Street to Woodside and 08.33 return. The 08.57 Monday-Friday from Woodside Terrace is dropped, but is being replaced by a new 08.55 from High Street at 09.13 from Woodside. Most daytime buses will then be 15 minutes later, until 14.33 from Woodside, 14.55 from High Street. From there, journeys depart 15.12 and 15.44 from Woodside and 15.30 and 16.03 from Commercial Street – but these four will run school holidays only. Amongst all the changes, the last bus at 16.40 from High Street still departs at the same time. However, the return bus at 17.00 from Woodside will now run at 16.58.
Service 25/25A/26/26A (Ninewells Hospital – Downfield – Whitfield – Broughty Ferry) Service revised, with all buses now numbered 26. Service withdrawn from Technology Park, Medipark (see Service 5 and 14 group), a part of South Road (see 28/29 and 30/31), Coupar Angus Road and Camperdown Leisure Park (see 2, 4, 57/59), Gotterstone (see 39), Fairfield Road north end (see 39), and Broughty Ferry town centre at weekends. The buses will now start in Dundee City Centre, running out via Perth Road, Blackness Avenue, Pentland Avenue, Charleston Drive, Glaims Road, Elmwood Road, Charleston Derive, Ninewells Hospital, then out via Charleston Drive (again!) before running via Arran Drive, Charleston Shops, Lochee By-Pass, Loons Road, Alpin Road, Strathmore Avenue, and Kings Cross Road. The service will be revised to have a 30 minute Monday to Saturday service, but the entire evening and Sunday service is being withdrawn. There will also be some large gaps around school times, when schools are in session. Some journeys will continue to serve Jack Martin Way (for the Pensions Office) but the majority will not. In Broughty Ferry and Barnhill, all journeys will operate an anti-clockwise loop, with the clockwise service provided by the revised 5 group.
Service 28S (Douglas Terminus – St Paul’s Academy) Service extended to/from Barnhill Shops and Balgillo in the afternoon only. Timetable now online.
Service 30/31/51 (Monday to Saturday service from Invergowrie or City Centre – Ninewells Hospital or Lochee – Arran Drive – South Road Tesco – Myrekirk Road – Gourdie Brae – Birkhill, Muirhead, Fowlis, Liff and Liff Hospital) Service was deregistered i.e. withdrawn by the bus operator, following sustained heavy losses on this route. Angus Council have tendered a replacement for this route, and with support from NHS Tayside, the service will maintain its current timetable, until about 18.00 hours only. The service will not start/end at Invergowrie, but will start/end at Technology Park, Explorer Road. A replacement between Charleston and Menzieshill/Ninewells Hospital via Arran Drive is provided on the new 26. Sunday service 51 is provided by Stagecoach Strathtay and is not being changed. Timetable now downloadable.
Service 32/32B/33/33A (City Centre – Forfar Road – Fintry or Whitfield Shops) A revised timetable is being introduced, with the main Monday to Friday daytime service between the City Centre and Caird Park/Morrisons being increased to a bus every 7-8 minutes, instead of every 9-10-11 minutes.
Services 43/44/45/45A (City Quay – City Centre – Gallagher Retail Park – Peep O’ Day Lane) This service has been withdrawn. It is suggested that the drivers shuttle will now be provided out-of-public-service.
From Monday 8th November 2010, Stagecoach Strathtay will make changes to Service 22/22D (Dundee - Glamis - Kirriemuir). The 17.50 from Dundee Service 22 will now operate at 17.35. A new timetable can be had now.

From Monday 3rd January 2011, Stagecoach in Fife are making changes to AirDirect Service 747 (Inverketihing - Ferrytoll P&R, for Dundee - Edinburgh Airport). A revised timetable will be introduced which will incorporate a number of improvements to the Monday to Friday peak timetable. In the morning there will be an additional journey continuing beyond RBS (at Gogarburn) to Riccarton, plus an extra journey to RBS providing a slightly later arrival time. In the afternoon additional journeys from RBS will be introduced to provide a 20 min service from 1652 until 1852, plus an earlier bus from The Gyle which will start from Redheughs Avenue opp. Redheughs Rigg at 1638. There will be some minor adjustments to the timings of journeys at other times of the day, and at the weekend. Would passengers please note that due to the Festive revisions this service will operate a Saturday timetable on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th January, with normal service resuming on Wednesday 5th. Download the new timetable for further details. The service is now branded as Jet747.

Milton of Craigie buses are still operating, with a timetable to follow shortly, when I recieve it from the store. I have added notes as to which services have free WiFi for passengers - currently Services 73, 73A, 333 and X54. This is also a feature on some Citylinks/Parks/Megabus journeys, but there is no way to identify which trips do and do not have this feature, so contact the operator if you wish to find out. Various timetable links have been updated and corrected on 18th and 19th January 2011.
From Tuesday 1st February 2011 until Monday 28th February 2011, National Express Dundee are having a special promotional fare of £2.50 for an All Day Ticket. This promotion is only valid on Service 5 (Barnhill - Ninewells Hospital).

Very Late Notice Roadworks! Due to an emergency road closure for essential repairs between Liff and Fowlis from Monday 28th February until Friday 4th March, National Express Dundee Services 30, 31, 51 will terminate and start from Ninewells Hospital. The service will only serve Liff Village once as they are being diverted around the closure which has meant that a temporary timetable will be in operation during this period.

From Monday 21st February 2011, Stagecoach will be introducing changes to some services, as part of a wider service review across Fife. Those that come into Dundee that will change are as follows... (timetables uploaded 27/01)...
Service 77/77B: Kingoodie/Invergowrie – Dundee – Newport – Gauldry/Wormit
The 77A journeys on this service will be revised to operate as service 77B journeys thus providing an hourly service to/from Crosshill Terrace throughout the day, in addition to the existing hourly 77 journeys to/from Gauldry. Waterstone Crook car park, Kirk Road and Bay Road will no longer be served.
Service 99/99A/99B/99C: St Andrews – Leuchars – Dundee
There will be some minor adjustments to morning and afternoon peak journeys to improve connections with rail services at Leuchars station. To reflect the increasing demand for this popular service, the Sunday daytime frequency will be increased to every 20 minutes with the introduction of hourly 99B journeys.
Update 2nd February - Fishers Tours have been successful in their appeal to the Court of Session, thus overturning the rulings of the Traffic Commisoner to prohibit them from introducing new services outwith Angus & Dundee, as well as to cancel certain services. The company are currently in the midst of submitting various new registrations, along with some cancellations. A full list of changes will be posted here in due course, once they are all in. Further update 12th February - the operator has supplied copies of the intermediate timetables, which apply from now until mid-April. Watch this space in April for the new timetables due later that month - including new routes starting in May. Click here to download the "Arbroath/Carnoustie routes" or "Brechin/Forfar routes".
Website update 1st and 11th and 12th February - some minor corrections and link corrections done.
Update 24th February - Perth & Kinross Council Carse & Scone Area Public Transport Guide - if you previously downloaded the PDF file, please download the update to this publication with details of the 77 changes, as they effect Perthshire. Otherwise, the Guide download below has been updated to incorporate the update sheet.
From Sunday 6th March 2011, National Express Dundee are introducing a package of service changes (information updated with full details 11th Feb). This includes major changes to the St Marys services, which will be simplified. St Marys & Ardler residents are able to go along to a forthcoming Service Change Public Exhibition, which will see a bus of NatEx Dundee management parked up at Turnberry Avenue, for you to ask further questions on new service provision. There are two exhibitions planned so that local residents can find out more information and ask questions of National Express staff. The exhibitions will be on a bus parked on Turnberry Avenue, close to the shops. These will be on Thursday 3rd February from 12.00 to 15.30 and Tuesday 8th February from 10.00 to 13.00.

Services 1, 1A, 1B withdrawn in their current format, and replaced by New Service 1, 1D and the revised Service 1C will replace them. Service 1 will operate a very frequent service during the day, replacing Services 1A, 1B, and peak 1. The industrial estates are no longer served by the 1 or 1A. The new very frequent Service 1 will follow the existing loop around the City Centre, then Victoria Road, Dens Road, Main Street, Hilltown Clock, Strathmartine Road to the Five Ways, then Strathmore Avenue, Harefield Road, Stack Leisure Park, Harefield Road on most journeys), Kings Cross Road, Kings Cross Circle, Macalpine Road, then all buses following the same route i.e. Rosemount Road, Dalmahoy Drive, Turnberry Avenue (Ardler Village Centre), Macalpine Road, St Kilda Road, Dalmahoy Drive, Laird Street to Benholm Place terminus. The service is operating “every 10 minutes or more often” throughout the day, every 30 minutes in the evenings. On Sundays, Service 1 will operate as Service 1D and extend via Laird Street, Strathmartine Road to Downfield Terminus. Download a new timetable for Services 1 & 1D here.
Service 1C City Centre – Clepington Road – Ardler Village – St Marys loop and/or Craigowl View
Route revised substantially. Service no longer operates to/from Craigowl View at any time of day – see Service 22 and 137/138/139 for alternatives. Service will still follow the loop around the City Centre before operating via Victoria Road, Dens Road, update - Service 1C will be using Moncur Crescent (replacing 1A) and Caird Avenue, not Provost Road any longer (updated 17th Feb), Clepington Road, Kingsway West Retail Park (except during the specified dates in the festive period!), Clepington Road, Kings Cross Circle, then via a new route – no longer serving Ardler Village (see Service 1/1D, which will also provide an evening & Sunday service to this area), but operating direct up Macalpine Road (passing the Crematorium), then in the current one-way loop around Macalpine Road, Laird Street, Dalmahoy Drive and Birkdale Place. This means that parts of the 1C that is not covered by the new 1 lose their evening service – but the bit of Laird Street between the terminus and Macalpine Circus will be covered by the 1D during Sunday daytimes. Download a new timetable for Service 1C here.
Service 2 City Centre – Perth Road – Peddie Street – Lochee – Clement Park Flats – Dryburgh – Camperdown Leisure Park
Service 2S – as 2 but to/from St Johns High School
Withdrawn in it’s current format – see the new 4, 4A, 4B and 4S for replacements.
Service 4 City Centre – Hilltown – Byron Street – Alpin Road – Lochee – Dryburgh – Camperdown Leisure Park
Withdrawn in it’s current format. However, a new Circular Service 4, 4A, evening Service 4B, and School service 4S will cover most of these points.
NEW SERVICE 4 City Centre – Hawkhill – Peddie Street – Lochee – Clement Park Flats – Dryburgh – Lochee – Alpin Road – Byron Street – Hilltown – City Centre (operates in this direction – see 4A for return)
NEW SERVICE 4A City Centre – Hilltown – Byron Street – Alpin Road – Lochee – Dryburgh – Clement Park Flats – Lochee – Peddie Street – Hawkhill – City Centre (operates in this direction – see 4 for return)
These two hourly circular services provide new Monday-Saturday daytime links across the City, replacing the former Service 2 and 4. The St Johns school journeys will be covered by 4S, and the evening service is covered by 4B. There will be two points that will not be covered by this daytime service – Perth Road (instead the 4 bus will run along Hawkhill before turning into Peddie Street, or in 4A reverse). Also, Camperdown Leisure Park will not be served during the main part of the day – but the evening service 4B will continue to do so. Having said that, the 18.15 from City Centre Service 4 will follow the above route to Dryburgh, then extend to Camperdown Leisure Park. Links to Camperdown Leisure Park during the day will continue to be provided by the 57, 59 (alight at Camperdown Gate.) Service 4 will leave the new main City Centre stop
of Union Street at 15 past most hours, with the 4A leaving at 45 past. There will be both a 4 and 4A at 17.15 on weekdays. UPDATE 17th February 2011 - the intended start/finish point in Union Street is about to be restricted for buses i.e. dropping off only. So, instead, Service 4 will start and end at Nethergate, bus shelter N1. This replaces the intetion to have the new 4 start/end in Union Street. Service 4A and 4B will continue to start/end at High Street/Primark. So, if you downloaded a timetable for this, please download this updated version instead.
NEW SERVICE 4B City Centre – Hilltown – Byron Street – Alpin Road – Lochee – Dryburgh – Camperdown Leisure Park (and return)
Hourly evening & Sunday service, replacing Service 4 at these times. Download an updated 4/4A/4B/4S timetable here.
NEW SERVICE 4S City Centre – Perth Road – Peddie Street – Lochee – St Johns High School and/or Dryburgh)
This school bus service replaces similar Service 2S – note that this school service will continue to use Perth Road, unlike the daytime 4/4A services. Download an updated 4/4A/4B/4S timetable here.
Services 5/5A/5B Barnhill – Broughty Ferry – Greendykes Road – City Centre – Perth Road – Technology Park – Ninewells Hospital
Three weekday morning journeys are advanced by a few minutes, to enhance reliability. Note there are no changes to the route of this service. Download a new 5/5A/5B timetable here.
Services 14, 14A, 14B, 14C (14A 14C start from City Centre via Riverside Drive) – Ninewells Hospital – Technology Park - Charleston – Clepington Road – Asda Milton – Douglas – Sainsbury’s Claypotts (14B 14C continues to Broughty Ferry)
Services withdrawn from the Technology Park – however, those that operate from the City Centre will operate via the Technology Park before Ninewells (14A, 14C). The journeys that still operate via Technology Park are titled 14D, irrespective of whether they start at the City Centre or Ninewells Hospital. All other services to run via Charleston Drive and Arran Drive instead – thus removing non-14D journeys from the far end of South Road. This group of services will continue to serve Kingsway West Retail Park, except during the festive period, as noted on the route descriptions. There are revised timings as a result – download a new 14, 14A, 14B, 14C, 14D timetable here.
Service 15 Whitfield – Pitkerro Road – Dura Street (to Whitfield) or Albert Street (to City) - City Centre
Service 17 Whitfield – Pitkerro Road – Dura Street - City Centre – Lochee Road – Tullideph Road – Ninewells Hospital – Technology Park – Tesco Extra, South Road
Service 15 is revised to operate towards the City Centre via Dura Street, Dens Road and Victoria Road, not Albert Street, King Street and Seagate (also see 17 and 17A). All buses towards Whitfield will serve Victoria Road, Dens Road and Dura Street.
Service 17 is withdrawn between Technology Park, Explorer Road at Sidlaw House and South Road, Tesco Extra. Buses will therefore terminate at Explorer Road, and use the roundabouts to turn for the next journey back to Whitfield. This service will be revised to operate via Albert Street, King Street and Seagate on route from Whitfield to Technology Park, as opposed to Dura Street, Dens Road and Victoria Road (also see 15). However, the evening service is renumbered 17A, and continues to serve Dura Street, Dens Road and Victoria Road towards Ninewells Hospital. All 17 and 17A buses towards Whitfield will serve Victoria Road, Dens Road and Dura Street.
Note that Service 26 has been retimed to provide a better spread of buses in Whitfield (for Ninewells Hospital) and Service 26 has also been changed to be leaving Whitehall Street 10 minutes apart from the 17, providing an improved spread of buses here too. The timetable for this group of services is now ready for download - so download a new 15, 17, 17A timetable here.
Service 23 City Centre – Dura Street – Court Street – Woodside
Departures from Woodside at 16.18 and 16.58, plus the 16.40 from High Street, are withdrawn. There are alternative 21 journeys via Woodside (albeit via Dens Road) departing Woodside Terrace at 16.05, 16.35 and 17.05, with a 21 journey leaving Albert Square at 16.40. This service continues to operate Monday to Friday only, with no changes to the route. Download a new 23 timetable here.
Service 26 City Centre – Blackness Avenue - Tullideph Road – Ninewells Hospital – Arran Drive – Charleston - Lochee – Alpin Road – St Marys – Kirkton – Claverhouse – Fintry – Whitfield Shops – Douglas – Broughty Ferry & Barnhill
The whole service is shifted by 15 minutes on the majority of departures – this is to allow Service 26 and 17 to combine to offer a better spread of Ninewells Hospital services from Whitfield, and Tullideph Road/Charleston Drive services from the City Centre. Together with an extended morning peak journey, it means the 50 minute gap for buses at Pentland Avenue is reduced to a standard 30 minutes throughout. This service continues to operate Monday to Saturday daytimes only, with no changes to the route. Download a new 26 timetable here.
Service 28/29 Douglas – Craigie – Arbroath Road – City Centre – Lochee Road – Lochee - Charleston
A revised timetable applies throughout the day on Sundays, as additional resources (i.e. one extra bus) has been allowed to give the service more running time – a typical Douglas-Charleston-Douglas rounder now goes from 77minutes to 97minutes. As a result, the Sunday timetable is revised, although both the 28 and 29 will still operate every 40 minutes, with a combined Sunday daytime service every 20 minutes along Arbroath Road and Lochee Road. There are no changes to the route, or the Monday-Saturday timetable. Download a new 28/29 timetable here.

From Monday 4th April 2011, Stagecoach Strathtay will introduce a revised timetable on Services 73/73A/73B (Arbroath - Ninewells Hospital). Following requests from the local community, buses will only serve Broomhill Drive, Monifieth in one direction. Therefore all journeys will operate direct from Monifieth High Street to Ashludie Hospital, with Broomhill Drive served on the return journey. A reduced timetable will also now operate on Dundee local holiday Mondays, in order to better match the level of passenger demand on such days. You can download a new 73/73A/73B timetable here. Updated 16th March - Service 30 (Arbroath - Montrose - Brechin - Stracathro/Edzell) is changing, with most buses operating via Montrose Station, and more early buses from Arbroath/late buses to Arbroath. I used to have the 30 leaflet up here, and it is now back - download the new 30 leaflet here - which is useful as it includes a full summary of all buses between Montrose, Inverkeillor and Arbroath.

Buses will continue to operate across Arbroath, and passengers will beable to remain on board. Rather than showing Montrose 39 or 39A, the bus will *probably* show Arbroath for Montrose 39 or 39A. This is the same as happens on other routes i.e. X42, and is to circumvent the requirements that apply for routes longer than 50km, as per EU mandates.

From Monday 13th June 2011, Stagecoach Fife are making minor changes to the Services 41/41A/41B (Kirkcaldy - Cupar, for Dundee) and minor changes to the Express network, including Service X54 (Dundee - Cowdenbeath - Edinburgh). Service X54 will be split into sections, like several other routes recently, but through travel will be permitted. Therefore, the changes are limited to just minor timing changes on this route.
Updated 26th May - additional information now ready. In addition, by popular demand, I now upload ALL Stagecoach Fife area express services, plus the 55 stopping service to Edinburgh - which you can use for connections to other places. X54 passengers should normally be able to get the X59 to Edinburgh at Glenrothes, reducing the journey somewhat!

As the link below for this route was initally wrong, I've reposted this here. September timetable for Service 53 between Dundee City Centre, Lochee Road, Lochee, Dryburgh/Park Hotel and Camperdown Country Park, for Dundee Flower & Food Festival. The company has confirmed that the timetable introduced last year will also run this year, but as ever, only on the three days of the year that the Festival is open - Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th September 2011.
Summer 2011 - Stagecoach Strathtay Commuter Cards have been repriced - forgot to add this before - see this information.
From Monday 12th September 2011, Stagecoach Bluebird Coastrider Express Service X7 (Montrose - Stonehaven - Aberdeen) will be extended to & from Dundee, via Arbroath. This new express service will run hourly between Dundee, Arbroath, Montrose, Stonehaven and Aberdeen. This new service will be operated by Stagecoach Bluebird and Stagecoach Strathtay. As a result, Service 39 will be revised to run between Arbroath (Warddykes) and Dundee, with the Montrose section of the 39 covered by the X7 and 30. Further details to follow.
Updated on 19th August 2011 - Stagecoach Bluebird and Stagecoach Strathtay will now operate a through, all day service from Dundee to Aberdeen, using some rather nice new Plaxton Elite bodied Volvo coaches. These will be fitted with leather seats and free WiFi, thus upgrading the corridor. Between Dundee and Montrose, Service X7 wil be limited stop along the A92 - stopping at Dundee Bus Station, Panmurefield, Muirdrum by-pass, Arbroath Bus Station, Marywell Gardens, Montrose Town Centre, then via all-stops along the A92 via St Cyrus, Johnshaven road end, Gourdon road end, Inverberbie, Kineff, Stonehaven, then onto Aberdeen.
Service X7 runs every hour for much of the day, Monday to Saturday daytimes, and every 2 hours on Sundays.
New Service 107 will be introduced every hour between Montrose and Stonehaven, replacing the links into Johnshaven and Gourdon, also every hour daytimes/2 hours Sundays.
Service 39 will be revised to run Monday to Saturday every 30 minutes (all stops) from Dundee to Arbroath, Warddykes, via the A92. Montrose will be covered Mon-Sat by the hourly Service 30 (which will become the stopping service) and newly extended Service X7 (limited stop).
Service 39A (evenings & Sundays) will cover the evening and Sunday stopping service Dundee - Carnoustie - Arbroath - Montrose, but will only run every 2 hours north of Arbroath - also see X7.
New timetables to follow - however the Stagecoach Bluebird elements have only just been registered, so this may be a little later than "normal".
Updated further 22nd August 2011 - see a photo of one of the coaches here.
Updated yet again on 23rd August - I've got new timetables for Services 30 and 39/39A, but X7 is still awaited. In addition to the changes mentioned above, Service 39A will be revised to run via Montrose Railway Station, with the 18.15 from Montrose now starting at Arbroath.
Also see Website updates below.
Updated on 24th August - thanks for the copy of the Service 107 timetable and Service X7 timetables. With the X7, I've got one that will print easily on three sides of A4, OR you can have one with two long pages, which include details of fares, tickets, and contacts. You choose!
Website update 15th August 2011 Lots of new stuff to download! New Dundee bus map now uploaded, along with some Stagecoach farecharts for Single fares around Dundee (the 99 is returns for some reason!) Also can now be downloaded is the 2010/2011 SESTRAN (South East Scotland) map, and the Stagecoach East Scotland Guide to Fares & Tickets leaflet - undated but correct to June 2011. Fife Council have issued a new edition of the Getting Around Fife map - as well as updated editions of some of the "Getting To..." Hospitals series. I now have these online here too - Getting To St Andrews Community Hospital, Getting To Victoria Hospital, Getting To Queen Margaret Hospital, and Getting from Fife to Nnewells Hospital. Also uploaded are the Fishers Tours Angus school buses from tomorrow (see service changes) and 260, 261, 262 Scottish Express timetables. Finally, as the Nordi Travel website appears to have gone, I have uploaded my digital copy of their current timetable leaflet. Change at Ferrytoll Park & Ride from a Dundee bus onto their 651 for Livingston. At weekends, Stagecoach X51 also operates between these points.
Website update 15th August 2011Angus schools go back on Tuesday 16th August 2011. As in previous years, Fishers Tours will be operating their school contracts as public services (Angus Council policy), but also these are extended (off their own back) to/from the depot at Mid Craigie Trading Estate. This year, for the first time, timetables are now included on this website, so scroll below for timetables beginning with A, F and K. Service B23 to Montrose Academy is now operated by either Glenesk Travel Co. Ltd. or Jamie's Transport Services (I forget which) but it will not then be running into Dundee.
Website update 15th August 2011 National Express Dundee - forgot to mention although I've been following since the start - can now be contacted via Twitter. For non-followers, read the updates here.
Website update 15th August 2011 Dundee City Council's Sustainable Transport Team have moved - see the More Information page for the new contact address. Tayside House closed on 15th August 2011, with most council functions now at Dundee House. This is a refurbished building in North Lindsay Street that was empty for years, opposite the NCP ground-level car park. Not too far away from the one-time Alexander's bus station (going WAY back!) - but in my time, I can recall the Transport Department moving out of Friarfield House, again not far away.
Website update 19th August 2011 Mecca Bingo buses to/from Dundee Playhouse no longer operate. Dundee High School timetable attached (also below). Updated 22/08/11 - now attached - that (aside from Asda Milton) should be the only misellaneous service recorded.

Website update 23rd August 2011 Service 105 (Stonehaven - Banchory) is now included, for those who wish to travel to "Stoney" on the forthcoming X7 (or 20 to Forfar, 21/21A to Brechin then 24 to Stonehaven) - this will allow day trips, Monday to Friday, from Dundee to Deeside.
Website update 23rd August 2011 National Express Coaches "From & To Glasgow" leaflet now uploaded, dated June 2011. No Edinburgh one now... mind you, I can recall when there was one for Dundee services...
Dundee city centre road closures affecting services from 12th June 2011 (or 14th, depending on which you believe!) for 12 weeks. The section of road between the City Quay Roundabout and the East Marketgait junction will be closed to all eastbound traffic whilst these works taking place.

Hebrides Drive, Mill O' Mains, Dundee will be partially closed from Monday 16th May 2011 for up to ten weeks, for the purpose of facilitating a sewer for a new housing project. National Express Dundee Service 36 (Monday to Saturday daytimes - and 36C too I presume?) will run on diversion : Normal route to Lewis Terrace, Mill o Mains, turning left prior to the bus stop. Turning right around at the turning point back along Hebrides Drive towards the Mill o Mains Shops. Left onto Eriskay Drive then normal route.

At the roundabout turn right, back down Forfar Road turning left at the traffic lights. Normal route onto Fintry Road.
Union Street, City Centre, Dundee is closed southbound from Monday 16th May 2011 for 28 weeks for carriageway reconstruction and environmental improvement works. BUSES WILL NOT STOP IN UNION STREET - "Nethergate 1" will be the main pick up / set down for all services mentioned except services 32,32b,33 and 33a which will use "Crichton Street 2".

Citylink/Parks/Megabus will run non-stop from the Bus Station to the West End. Stagecoach services will be diverted (back) to George Street. Click here for a map and more details. Updated 20:53 on 25th August - City of Edinburgh Council has just voted to curtail the tram project at Haymarket. It is not known the impact on the Princes Street works. Mind you, they might just be using the time to remove the lines.... hopefully clarity on this will be forthcoming soon Update 09/09 - project since u-turned, so the roadworks were put on hold, but I understand will now start 1 week late.
Updated 18/09 - two weeks late, almost - started at 05.00 on Saturday 17th September 2011.

Had this news in re changes to National Express Service 5 changes from Monday 29th August 2011. Yes, again. "With effect from Monday 29 August 2011 buses which have currently been terminating at Balgillo Road opp Kintail Place will continue around the Balgillo Road - Strathmore Street - Nursery Road loop as far as Nursery Road opp Archer Street."
Update 26th August 2011: This short-notice change has been accepted by the Office of the Traffic Commissoner. You can download a new timetable here. The change is to extend buses that would only run as far as Balgillo, onwards around the loop as far as the last stop on Nursery Road. The timetable does not yet have a route description or cover, but I will do this in due course. EDIT: this has already been done, not sure why I thought it wasn't. Link corrected 18th September 2011, or download from the timetable list.
Update 6th October 2011 - various leaflets updated with minor changes, and link corrections. This includes a change to the operation of 651 (Nordi have ceased) and Stagecoach 27C, now a few mins earlier.

Ferrytoll Park & Ride offers a free parking facility for travelling off by bus into Edinburgh, Livingston etc.
However, with immediate effect (owing to a lack of space), there will be a 7 nights maximum parking session. For more information call the Park & Ride site supervisor on 01383 420197.
Slightly outwith our area (but remember, that's how the M11 started!) is the introduction on 12th September 2011 of the (un-numbered) Megabus.com overnight sleeper coach between Glasgow and London (non-stop). Bookings will be online from 5th September. In the meantime, you can download an article from Bus & Coach Buyer about the new service, with times, fares and photographs. Introduction may be delayed until 3rd October (when the others change) - tickets are still not on sale. Update - starting on 21st October 2011.
From 3rd October 2011 Scottish Citylink/Megabus/Parks "joint venture" (along with Megabus and Citylink under their own brands) will make some changes to their express coach network.

Service M92 (Edinburgh - Dundee) - the 20.45 from Edinburgh to Dundee journey is withdrawn Monday to Saturday, but will still run on Sundays. Passengers will still be able to travel between these points at this time, simply by boarding Service M90 (Inverness coach) at the same time, and then changing to Service M9 at Broxden Park & Ride. An additional M92 from Edinburgh to Dundee on Saturdays will operate at 07.35, providing a connection to Service M9 for Aberdeen at Dundee. There are some minor tweaks to London routes M11 and M20, and, as well as the Megasleeper, a new Service M18 will run daily between Rugby, Coventry, Birmingham, Preston, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Dundee Local Holiday is coming up this coming Monday - 10th October 2011 - which is now the second Monday of October, as the schools were in the previous week. National Express Dundee will be running a Saturday service all day on this date. Stagecoach Strathtay were registered to operate a holiday service the previous week - so you may need to double-check.

H2T is a newly-setup timetable production company, set up by your webmistress Suzy, and her business & life partner. No changes are planned to this website, but we are now part of Suzy's new business network, as opposed to a personal venture.

ONE-DAY SPECIAL EVENT ON SATURDAY 27th OCTOBER 2011
Stagecoach Strathtay will be running an ex-London Routemaster (fairly certain that it will be one of the group that Stagecoach used to compete with Strathtay in Perth back in the early 1990's, but that's water under the bridge now I think!) on Service 73 between Dundee and Broughty Ferry or Carnoustie. A special fare of £2.00 (Adult) or £1.00 (Child) will apply on this one-off service. The announcement is to celebrate 25 years of Tayway 73 - BUT I'm fairly sure Tayway (back to Services 41-44) goes back to 1980/1981? Certainly this is 25 years since the Tayway network started it's conductor-operated, cross-city, 70-number series, format.
If you can't get out this Saturday, there are also commemorative mugs and pens for sale at the Arbroath and Dundee Bus Station Travel Shops, to commemorate, for £4.00.
Anyway - special bus times as follows...

Mid-March 2012 - This website homepage is very full right now, with major roadworks around the city centre, and beyond, service changes, new maps and faretable publications, and much more besides.

From Monday 20th February 2012 - Stagecoach East Scotland would like to advise passengers of a small timetable amendment to service 16A from the 20th February 2012. From this date, the 1545 Perth High School to Dundee journey will be revised to commence from Perth South Street at 1555. School pupils entitled to school travel will continue to be able to board at the school. Fare paying passengers travelling to the city centre can make use of alternative facilities provided by StagecoachGold service 7. (In other words - the bit of the trip that brings the school kids from Perth High School into town, and onwards, is no longer in public service. Non-scholar pass holding passengers should board the bus at Perth South Street, Stop N, as per the rest of the day. If you are travelling back from point on the Glasgow Road, use 7 to Perth, South Street, and change there. No change to the morning service. A new timetable can be found here.

Only the second pernament Nightbus service in Dundee's history (as opposed to for special events etc.) has been proposed by National Express Dundee management.

This service is proposed to run from the Summer, and we will expand on this when more information can be had. Read this article (via The Courier) for all the information.
Fishers Tours Scottish Express Service 239 (Dundee - coast - Aberdeen) is being withdrawn after running for the last time on 26th April 2012. Stagecoach X7 provides a replacement.
Speaking of the X7 - no change to the Dundee journeys, but there have been changes to the Stonehaven journeys on the 7. This no longer includes the Dundee journeys, so it is no longer listed below - but can be downloaded here.
Friendly Bus services were reviewed in March 2012 - and now new timetable leaflets have been printed, and are now online too, for this useful service. If you've never heard of it before - basically it's a service for those who struggle to use regular buses. It comes to your sheltered housing scheme/complex, takes you shopping, and has a help and helping you aboard. There are no fares to pay, so you don't need to qualify for a bus pass to use it. Download timetables for the Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays are all now online.
Web updates March 2012
last updated 18th March 2012
Friendly Bus leaflets - with an explanation of this useful service, and times for the outbound journey, are now online. Timetables for Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays are all now online.

From 15th April 2012 there will be a minor change to Stagecoach 57 (Dundee - Blairgowrie - Perth), which doesn't affect a Dundee journey, but I thought we'd spread the word. The 14.35 from Blair to Perth on college days will now terminate at Perth, Kinnoull Street (i.e. council offices) instead of going to the Bus Station. Download a new timetable here. For details of changes to 15 and 47 (also changing but outside Dundee) as well as routes not on this site, see this news piece.
From 9th and 16th April 2012 Stagecoach Bluebird and Stagecoach East Scotland are changing many fares. Most go up, some stay the same, and some have been reduced in price. Download more details for Bluebird (i.e. X1 and X7) or East Scotland (everything else) via the links.
Fishers Tours Scottish Express Service 239 (Dundee - coast - Aberdeen) is being withdrawn after running for the last time on Thursday 26th April 2012. Stagecoach X7 provides a replacement.
From 29th April 2012 a minor change will be made to one of the routes that we show for connecting purposes.

Stagecoach Strathtay Services 21/21A/21B (Forfar for Dundee – Aberlemno or Finavon – Brechin – Stracathro and/or Edzell) This service has not yet gone up for tender, but will be doing so in 2013. However, on Sundays, the 21A service was interworked with the 30. Stagecoach have lost the Sunday service on the 30 (all except the first run of the day) to M W Nicoll, so a temporary contract has been agreed until the end of the Mon-Sat contract, when the entire 21/21A/21B can be tendered together. An extra evening return trip is added and other journeys are changed by a few minutes. Timetable can now be downloaded.
National Express Dundee 22 (Ninewells Hospital – Blackness Road - Dundee City Centre – Strathmartine Road – Downfield – Craigowl View) 20.10 and 20.40 Service 22 buses from Ninewells Hospital are renumbered 22A and leave three minutes earlier. After Downfield terminus, the bus will operate via Strathmartine Hospital, Bridgefoot to Craigowl View Roundabout i.e. not entering the scheme, then continuing back down Strathmartine Road to Downfield, before returning via the normal 22 route to Ninewells Hospital. This will operate every day of the week – and is therefore the only Sunday bus to Strathmartine Hospital after an absence of some time (although the hospital is now a fraction of it’s original size in terms of utilisation. The current timetable shows “then every 10 mins or less” but the new timetable shows every journey – the frequency is unchanged at every 7-8 minutes Monday-Friday or every 10 minutes on Saturdays.

Stagecoach Strathtay Services 27/27A/27B/27C (Forfar – Letham – Friockheim – Arbroath - Cliffburn) Mon-Sat daytime buses that run from Cliffburn via Arbroath High Street/Post Office will no longer do the loop past the Library/Hill Place, Hill Street, High Street – instead turning right at the Library directly into West Abbey Street. Evening bus from Arbroath High Street still leaves from there unaffected. Timetable can now be downloaded. Finished Angus Council leaflet can be downloaded here
National Express Dundee 28/29 (Douglas – Dundee City Centre – Charleston) These services now have a reduced early morning timetable, with a reduction in the number of buses.

Stagecoach Strathtay and MW Nicoll Service 30 (Arbroath/Montrose – A935 – Brechin – Stracathro Hospital and/or Edzell) Contracts for the early morning, afternoon, evening & Sunday journeys were all up for tender. As a result, some school and peak buses operated by Stagecoach will be ran by Nicoll’s. In the evening, Monday to Friday, the contract passes from Nicoll’s to Travel Wishart – but Nicoll’s have registered a commercial bus 10 mins ahead of the evening Wishart’s service, on the first two journeys. Saturday service is all Stagecoach, except for the second morning run which is now Nicoll’s. The Sunday service passes from Stagecoach to Nicoll’s, except one journey. Monday-Friday daytime service is an hourly Stagecoach service, and an hourly Nicoll’s service, more-or-less unchanged, with just Stagecoach on Saturdays.

Finished Angus Council leaflet can be downloaded here
NEW SERVICE Stagecoach Strathtay and Travel Wishart 30B (Montrose Station – Borrowfield – Hillside Bridge – Midgrip Cottages – Dubton – A935 – Brechin – Stracathro and/or Edzell) Following the closure of Sunnyside Hospital, staff have been moved to Stracathro. As part of the retendering process, the staff at the hospitals were approached, and asked for an evening diversion on Service 30 to cover Hillside and Borrowfield – as they’d previously had the 47 to work when they worked at Sunnyside Hospital. So, the 21.22 Service 30 from Stracathro, and the 22.45 Service 30 from Montrose Station, are both renumbered 30B, and follow this diversion – Monday to Saturday. Operated by Travel Wishart on weekdays and Stagecoach Strathtay on Saturdays. Timetable can now be downloaded. Finished Angus Council leaflet can be downloaded here

NEW SERVICE National Express Dundee Service X39 (Dundee City Centre – A92 – Carnoustie) A new service providing a single bus per direction from Dundee, High Street at 08.57, returning from Carnoustie 13.47, Monday to Friday.

Stagecoach Strathtay Service 39 (Dundee City Centre – A92 – Arbroath) The new timetable for Service 39 shows hourly between Dundee and Arbroath/Warddykes, but the electronic bus service registration “virtual document” – along with the paper Arbroath Town timetable – shows every half hour on this route. Journey from Montrose in the morning peak now runs as 30A from Montrose to Arbroath. Last Friday/Saturday bus from Dundee city centre is withdrawn but see Service 73E. UPDATED TIMETABLE ADDED 10th MAY 2012 INCLUDING ROUTE DESCRIPTION AND CONFIRMED 30 MINUTE SERVICE - DOWNLOAD HERE Finished Angus Council summary leaflet of all buses between Arbroath and Dundee can be downloaded here
Stagecoach Strathtay Service 39A (Kingoodie/Invergowrie/Ninewells – Dundee – Carnoustie – Arbroath – Warddykes, Inverkeilor – Montrose) Service number discontinued, but most buses will still run at similar times. Section of route from Kingoodie/Invergowrie/Ninewells to Arbroath will run as 73C/73E. Section of route between Arbroath, Warddykes, Inverkeilor and Montrose will run as 30A.
Stagecoach Strathtay Services 73, 73A, 73B (Ninewells Hospital – Dundee City Centre – Craigie Avenue or Blackscroft - Broughty Ferry – Monifieth – Carnoustie – Arbroath – Cliffburn) Section beyond Arbroath Bus Station withdrawn and replaced by new Service 44/44A. The current service has slightly extended journey times to add reliability, include a diversion via Charles Avenue in Timmergreens (rather than the shops) and some 73’s (via Muirdrum) now run as 73A (via Easthaven) or vice-versa. The current Weekday three buses an hour to Ashludie Hosp/Broomhill Drive will now all run via Ethiebeaton Park (Three buses an hour, instead of one) in the off-peak weekday period. Saturday daytime service reduced to four buses an hour between Ninewells Hospital and Monifieth High Street, with two buses to Arbroath, one terminating in Carnoustie, and the other running to Ethiebeaton Park, Ashludie Hospital and Broomhill Drive.

Finished Angus Council summary leaflet of all buses between Arbroath and Dundee can be downloaded here
NEW SERVICE 73C, 73E (Kingoodie/Invergowrie – Ninewells Hospital – Dundee City Centre – Broughty Ferry – Carnoustie – Arbroath) This new service replaces the Kingoodie/Invergowrie/Ninewells Hospital – Arbroath section of evening & Sunday Service 39A (the section beyond Arbroath to Warddykes and Montrose is now part of 30A). Buses will run on the current 39A route, with Muirdrum runs numbered 73C, and Easthaven runs numbered 73E. Some minor changes, but notable is that the 23.07 Invergowrie to Arbroath daily journey (via Easthaven Mon-Sat or Muirdrum on Sundays) is now Sundays only. The Mon-Sat bus presumably runs off at Invergowrie back to Dundee depot. There is an alternative bus at 23.07 Mon-Sat as a Service 16 from Invergowrie, Main Street, direct along the Perth Road to Dundee Bus Station. An alternative bus from Ninewells Hospital via Blackness Road runs on National Express 22 at 23.10. As a result, the 23.47 from Dundee High Street 39 to Arbroath Bus Station on Friday & Saturday nights (via the A92) now runs as Service 73E at 23.45, replacing the withdrawn last 39A. These evening & Sunday services will not run via Charles Avenue in Timmergreens, but the revised 44A will. Timetable can now be downloaded.

JP Coaches Service 81 (Carnoustie – Monifieth – Monikie or Wellbank – Forfar) Service changes hands for the first time since being introduced eight years ago, and will now be operated by National Express Dundee (also see 27 and X39). Buses from Carnoustie, Carlogie Road at Panbride Road to Forfar will now run 20 minutes later throughout (was 09.10, now 09.30).

JP Coaches and TeeJay Travel Services 137, 138, 139 (Services to Kirkton of Auchterhouse, Bridgefoot, Strathmartine Hospital, Sidlaws, Tealing Village, Inveraldie and Murroes)
Service changed considerably, with al contracts won by National Express Dundee, and additional commercial journeys added to the mix. The new timetable provides all buses running beyond Downfield (at least to Kirkton but the majority continuing to Dundee College and Dundee City Centre), and some extra journeys.
Service 137/137A starts at Dundee High Street via Dundee College - Kingsway Campus, Asda Kirkton, (Downfield Surgery or Balgowan Avenue?), Downfield Cox Street terminus, then 137 via Bridgefoot then Strathmartine, and back to Downfield, whereas 137A runs to Strathmartine then Bridgefoot, and back to Downfield, before retuning to town. A total of 9 137/137A buses during the day to/from Strathmartine/Bridgefoot, plus two Service 22A’s, and three Service 138’s, Monday to Friday. Saturday sees six 137/137A’s, one 138, and two 22A’s. Sunday sees two 22A’s (new). This provides a grand total of 14 buses Mon-Fri, and 9 buses on Saturdays – currently 10 or 6 – to/from Strathmartine Hospital and Bridgefoot (plus one 139 in one direction). Also see Service 22/22A, Service 138 and Service 139.
Service 138 starts at Dundee High Street via Dundee College – Kingsway Campus, Asda Kirkton, (Downfield Surgery or Balgowan Avenue?), Downfield Cox Street terminus, Strathmartine Hospital, Bridgefoot, then in a loop via Leoch, Kirkton of Auchterhouse, Braeside, and Newlandhead, before returning. There are three return buses Mon-Fri and one on Saturdays. When added to Service 139, (via Murroes) there will be six buses a day Mon-Fri to/from Auchterhouse, as now. Saturday service is down from four buses a day, to three – but they all run to/from Dundee City Centre.
Service 139 has been changed to incorporate the peak bus from Service 138 (JP) and the main 139 service by TeeJay. Service 139 leaves from Dundee High Street via Forfar Road and South Powrie to Murroes, although the morning bus will still run via Pitkerro Road and Burnside of Duntrune. The buses will then continue to Tealing and Inveraldie villages, with all but one bus continuing to Auchterhouse. One morning bus Mon-Sat runs via the 138 route from Dundee High Street via Kirkton to Bridgefoot and Auchterhouse, then continuing back to Dundee via Murroes. Current Murroes service is maintained with an additional peak journey that also serves Tealing and Inveraldie villages. Download each timetable by clicking on the service number.

Monday 13th August 2012 will see changes to Fife and Perthshire, but these appear somewhat minor on some routes, with big changes elsewhere. Read details of all changes in August 2012 on this blog post, but the changes as they affect Dundee are as follows;
Service 16/16A/16B: Perth – Errol – Inchture – Longforgan – Dundee
There will be some minor adjustments to the route and timetable during the day, with certain eastbound 16A journeys serving Walnut Grove road end instead of Glendoick turning circle. On Monday to Saturday evenings there will be a reduction in the number of journeys, and the Sunday evening journeys will be withdrawn.

There are no changes to Service X7 or 113 at this time. but see 5th November 2012 changes below!
What might have been - National Express Dundee (then called Travel Dundee) did win the 137/138/139 contract back in 2005 - but missed off £200/day from the contract price - which they offered at £67/day - so the contract remained with Strathtay until 2009 when TeeJay took over, and now... well, a look back at what might have been then, but what is now (although the blind doesn't show Pink Cottages, it was the last farestage on the Auchterhouse loop...) the Excels were not fitted with the blind, but the publicity person at the time was keen to show what could be done...
Excuse the delay - your webmistress has been on the move, and now, having got broadband back on and caught up a bit, can now get this website updated too.
