Dundee bus stops go digital

TRAVELLERS on Dundee’s bus network are now only a few clicks away from constantly updated real time information about the next service.

He said: “These days almost all of us have a mobile device and if you use it to download a QR reader app you can get instant access to real time information on the next departures from the bus stop you are standing at.
