Xplore Dundee – the only driver you need for the Open!
NXWM hybrids at Xplore Dundee's garage
Xplore Dundee is helping golf fans get to the hottest local sporting event of this summer – The 147th Open at Carnoustie.
The city’s main bus company is partnering with event organisers The R&A to provide a dedicated Park and Ride shuttle service from the event’s car parks to a drop off point close to the course. Spectators are urged to use these facilities to minimise disruption to local traffic and ensure the fastest possible transfer to and from Carnoustie, which is hosting the Championship.
Managing Director of Xplore Dundee Christine McGlasson said, “This is the first time Xplore Dundee and National Express have been involved in this prestigious championship and we’re delighted to be operating shuttle buses for the Park and Ride facilities. We’ve drafted in extra vehicles and drivers from the West Midlands to provide a seamless service for The Open, and to make sure there is no disruption to our operations in Dundee.
“We are aiming to make it easier for people arriving in the town by car to get to the golf course and back again. We’ve worked closely with The R&A, Angus Council and Police Scotland to make sure public transport is the fastest and easiest way to get to see all The Open action.”
Xplore Dundee’s low-emission hybrid electric double deckers will run between the car parks and course approximately every 5 mins from the first practice day on Sunday 15th July, right through to the final round on Sunday 22nd July.
