Dundee - Essential Information
Dundee Riverside International Airport is less than one mile from the city centre. There are no airport shops. There is a café in the arrival/departure hall, serving hot and cold drinks and snacks. Wireless broadband internet access is available for a small fee. There is no airport shuttle bus but taxis meet each flight.
Dundee’s city centre is very compact and the fastest way of getting around the central shopping and business area is usually to walk.
Dundee has an extensive, rapid bus network which covers all areas of the city. Buses from the city centre to outlying suburbs such as Broughty Ferry (east of the centre) or Invergowrie (east of the airport) take about 20-25 minutes. Buses on most routes operate every 15-20 minutes. Fares are sold on board (exact fare only, no change given) and are priced in stages of three stops per stage. A Daysaver ticket allows unlimited travel on all routes. You can also choose from evening saver tickets which allows unlimited travel after 18:00. The main bus station is at the corner of the Seagate and Trades Lane.
Taxis may be hailed on the street or called from any bar or restaurant. There are taxi ranks at the airport, outside Dundee Tay Bridge Station, and on the High Street in the city centre. Taxis are metered and cost approximately £1 per mile. A tip is appreciated but tipping is not essential.
