Dundee project's as simple as A B C

Smarter Choices, Smarter Places funding has helped to keep a smart bus ticket scheme on the road to success.

Dundee bus ticket scheme has been supported by Smarter Choices, Smarter Places

Dundee City Council launched the ABC ticketing scheme in 2016 which gave bus users unlimited travel for a fixed daily or weekly price.

The scheme proved popular at first, but, just over a year later, ticket sales were starting to plateau.

Smarter Choices, Smarter Places funding was used to promote the scheme in new ways and also offset the cost of a increase in ticket prices.

One Dundee bus passenger said

I live quite far out and use the ABC ticket weekly.
It makes things easier using different buses companies cause some give change and some don’t.
So I can hop on the first bus that comes instead of waiting for one I’ve got enough change for.
