About Xplore Dundee and their new fleet of vehicles

Xplore Dundee is powering up and you’re invited! 

There’s something very special happening in Dundee and we want you to be a part of it. 

It’s the launch of the city’s very first zero emission bus route. Yes, our double deck Emeralds are going even greener! 

Our 12 new electric buses will be powering up this December on our Service 28. 

This is a route at the heart of our city, and it represents an investment of £7m that will see our communities benefit from cleaner, greener air. 

Our buses definitely come with batteries included this Christmas, so please come along and celebrate this milestone with us. 


This event is open to members from across the region and FREE to attend.
