This evening, along with two office bearers from the Community Spirit Action Group and my ward colleague Cllr Donald Hay, I met with Lawrence Davie, Managing Director of National Express Dundee.
The Community Spirit representatives handed over the petition about the 11/12 service - with some 650 signatures from local residents.
It was a very positive and constructive meeting. It is clear that National Express Dundee is listening to local concerns and Lawrence hopes to announce positive changes to the service once he has Board approval and agreement from the Traffic Commissioner. This should hopefully allow longer weekday services and some service at weekends, going a good way towards addressing residents' concerns.
We also discussed the issue of early morning number 17 buses and Lawrence will look further into this matter.
