Yesterday, I had a useful and constructive meeting with Elsie Turbyne, the new Managing Director of National Express Dundee (see right).
In particular, I was keen to emphasise the need for low carbon buses particularly on the 28/29 and 17 routes that cover Lochee Road, given the air quality issues on part of the route.
Ms Turbyne indicated that National Express is investing in new fleet this financial year which will bring in significant new/newer buses in the city. This will ensure all buses the company uses in Dundee are at least Euro 3 compliant.
This is a good step forward but I would like to see the low carbon vehicles that are already used on Service 5 also being used on other West End services.
