Timetables for the Dundee – Glasgow E3 Ember Service, starting 1st August, are online at http://dundeebuses.info/000%202022%20Timetables/E03%20Dundee%20Glasgow%20Ember%201st%20August%202022.pdf
(Stopping Arrangements list to follow).
HOWEVER be aware that a soft launch is happening TOMMORROW (Thursday 14th July 2022) with limited services and to from Glasgow. This will not carry intermediate trips (Dundee-Stirling etc) presumable to qualify under “Express” Service rules. (Stirling is Castleview where I’ve said for years a broxden style arrangement for the P2 could work in Stirling too) – P&R Timetable at http://dundeebuses.info/000%202022%20Timetables/P02%20Stirling%20Park%20and%20Ride%20Castleview%20and%20Business%20Park%2010th%20August%202021.pdf
From 1st August the
full service commences, so from that date all journeys will run (including through
the night) and be available for local trips too. Company blurb says;
We’re launching a new route from Dundee to Glasgow. We’ll be soft-launching with four services per day in each direction from 14 July. This will be followed by a full-service launch on 1 August with ten services per day in each direction, running 24/7.
It’s just £8.50 for an adult single from Dundee to Glasgow if you book online (whether you book weeks before or a minute ahead).
In Dundee, we’ll be picking up outside Malmaison in the city centre and dropping off at the train station (about 100m away from the pick up point). In Glasgow, we’ll be calling at Buchanan Bus Station. We also have a range of intermediate stops including Stirling (Castleview Park & Ride), Dunblane, Cumbernauld and Perth (Broxden Park & Ride).
During the soft-launch period, it’ll only be possible to book a journey to and from Glasgow but we’ll be opening up the full range of journeys from 1 August.
BE AWARE – in Dundee Service is picking up outside Malmaison Hotel (X90 stop) BUT unloading at one of the two Dundee Railway Station bus stops – NOT Greenmarket where the E1/E2 uses. Perth will be Broxden Park & Ride – NOT Walnut Grove – where 7 takes passengers to/from Perth during the day – http://dundeebuses.info/000%202022%20Timetables/007%20007A%20007B%20007C%20007S%20Perth%201st%20November%202021.pdf
