Fares Freeze for 2021
We have frozen our fares for 2021, meaning you won’t pay a penny more to board your local bus. It is important to us that bus travel is affordable and accessible for everyone.
Smart Ways to Pay
- Tap on with your contactless bank card or smartphone
- Search ‘Xplore’ in your app store and save with mTickets
- Top-up a smartcard - it’s simple, speedy and secure
- If you are paying with cash, there is an exact fare policy on the bus, meaning our drivers cannot give change. This is for speed, simplicity and security.

Single fares on the bus are like a pay-as-you go option if you don’t travel often. Check out the 10-TripSaver to save money on infrequent travel.
- Short Hop (on the bus) - £1.80
- Max Single (on the bus) - £2.30
- Max Single (mTicket) - £2.20
The price of a journey is calculated based on the distance you are travelling on one bus: Short Hops are valid for up to one fare stage, and Max Singles are valid for two or more fare stages. Buy on the bus from the driver (or on the Xplore Dundee app).
Special-rate single fares are charged on services 57a/59 | 73b | 137/138 | 139, as we operate them under Council contracts.
