ABC Bus Ticket - Council Role Image

The role of Dundee City Council as an independent administrator in the recently-launched ABC bus ticket will be outlined to the city development committee on Monday (October 31). 

Currently involving Xplore Dundee, Stagecoach and Moffat & Williamson, the scheme allows passengers to travel on the three bus company services across Dundee with one smart ticket. 

The committee will hear that participating operators are required to appoint an independent scheme administrator to manage certain elements of the scheme and redistribute ticket revenue according to usage. 

Dundee City Council has been invited to take on the role of independent scheme administrator and provide administrative services. 

It has been agreed that a management fee (expected to be 2% of total ticket sales) will be paid to Dundee City Council to cover administration costs. 

The council will be responsible for redistribution of sales revenue to participating operators using a pre-agreed formula, will call meetings of the scheme’s management committee and undertake related administrative tasks, including the acceptance of new operators into the scheme. 

Councillor Will Dawson, convener of city development, said: “I am delighted to see the launch of the ABC ticket as we have been working hard with our partners to bring our long-held ambition to fruition. 

“It is already making a real difference for people and improving their ability to travel around the city. 

“I am looking forward to the scheme growing in the future and we are actively encouraging new operators to join the scheme.”
