Broughty Ferry bus service improvements

BUS SERVICES between Broughty Ferry, Dundee City Centre and Ninewells Hospital are to be improved.

National Express Dundee has increased the frequency of the No 5 service, giving customers more choice and providing more reliable links across the city and in the surrounding area.

The changes came into effect on Sunday.

The No 5 service now runs every seven to eight minutes between Broughty Ferry and the city centre from Monday to Friday.

It will also increase in frequency on Sundays, improving from every 30 minutes to every 15 minutes during the day.

Services to Ninewells Hospital will also increase during the day to once every 15 minutes.

Travellers from Broughty Ferry will also be able to get to the city centre earlier on a Sunday morning and much later each night. The last bus to the city now leaves from outside the Post Office Bar just after midnight.

The Dundee Night Owl service is extending the area it serves in response to customer demand.

Two extra late night journeys to Monifieth have been added, travelling via the High Street and Ashludie Hospital.
