A bloomin’ great bus service
An Emerald bus travels through Camperdown Park
Stemming from the success of previous years, Xplore Dundee is once again running special Service 53 to Camperdown Park for the annual Flower & Food Festival.
This year, the bus operator has pruned the schedule, with journeys running every hour on the Friday and every half-hour on Saturday & Sunday.
It’s not your garden-variety bus service, with city centre pick-ups at the High Street (H1), Commercial Street (F1) and Ward Road. There's also a transfer point at Lochee High Street, where customers can join the 53 from services 9/10 and 28/29. The route runs right into the park itself, dropping passengers off just metres from prize veg, beautiful blooms and a huge range of tasty treats.
There’s also a great crop of tickets to suit everyone attending this popular local event:
- For those planning to go to the festival on Saturday and Sunday, there's a WeekendSaver for just £7. It's available & valid from 6pm on Friday until last bus on Sunday, on any service in the network
- Friends and family can travel together, with up to five people valid on a GroupSaver. This starts from just £6 on the mTicket app (or £8 on-bus)
- The traditional DaySaver (£3.50 on the app, or £3.70 on-bus) offers travel on all buses, all day
- All tickets are available to buy contactless - which means just a beep of a card to get on the bus
The Flower & Food Festival will be held at Camperdown Park on Friday 6, Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 September. For opening times and other info, visit dundeeflowerandfoodfestival.com.
