Website Updates (last updated 9th November 2017)

Hello everyone!

 

Thursday 9th November 2017; two fixes – a new X53 timetable from November (the original missed out the Sunday service from Dundee to Fife), and the company edition of the Xplore Dundee 22 is also done. Some minor cosmetic fixes at the same time.

 

Monday 30th October – Wednesday 1st November 2017; apologies for the delay! Major update of service changes.

 

Wednesday 5th July 2017; Index to Places Served (and a corrected Intro section) and an update to XD fares all uploaded. Also…  Services 501 (Blairgowrie – Ballater) and the Ring of Breadalbane Explorer RO1/RO2 will not be running this year. Also, Hamish Gordon has withdrawn school service 624. To reflect this, I’ve updated the files for 71, 890/896. At the same time there are reprints of the DRT Balquhidder and Stagecoach 107 (reprint only in new S/C Bluebird format removed from Stonehaven booklet) times.

 

A event timetable now online is Service 80s for the Rewind Festival at Scone Palace (21st to 24th April 2017). At the same time, there are updated timetables for Elizabeth Yule 82 and Basin Rambler for Summer 2017.

 

Friday 16th June 2017 : 15.00

Updating serivce changes now and past, catching up with removing some no-longer-running services, and adding a couple of updates. Main file now moved to accomodate the new look of the  timetable book, so scroll down to Section 6 for the bus timetables. Some more tidying up to follow in due course.

 

Friday 31st March 2017

Some tidying up, plus updating recent and forthcoming timetables, diversions and fares.

 

Wednesday 22nd February 2017

Further to yesterday’s update, an updated list of services is uploaded, encompassing typos and corrections.
Following feedback over on the Dundee Area Bus Forum, there is also a HTML [look for Complete List (Web Traditional Style) ] version of the PDF spreadsheet list of services and links. This file is generated from the same Excel sheets. Gridlines added to the PDF, but this does not come out in the web version.

 

 

Tuesday 21st February 2017

The tweaked DundeeBuses is here!

 

22.16 at 21st February 2017 – menus done, just to do Angus Quick Pick (to follow), everything else is done.

Previous pages removed, and the complete list is a regularly-updated PDF with hyperlinks. This resolves table issues in WordPress/Blogbox, and will give a much easier to use file. The most recent timetable list will always be at the top of the page, in the navigation menu.

Full bus, coach, school bus, DRT and rail timetables.

If you prefer to look through files, you can now view the full timetable directory.  These will be in number order, and you can use your Find option (usually CTRL or MAC and F) to find the number you want. Letters after service numbers may be there to differentiate, for example, different parts of the menu.

Quick Pick lists is completed for Dundee, and eventually one for Angus and Perthshire each. In the meantime a Quick Pick for Fares, Maps and External Links will all be there.

As with previous editions of the site, we hope you find it of use!
