More seats for V&A official opening in Dundee

Tuesday, 11 September 2018

ScotRail is adding more seats to trains for the official opening of the V&A in Dundee this weekend.

More than 10,000 people are expected to attend an event on Friday 14 September with thousands more visiting on Saturday for a family-based festival along the waterfront.

An additional late-night train will run on Friday from Dundee to Perth, with more than 50 trains on Saturday operating with extra seats.

The V&A is easily accessible from Dundee train station and customers are encouraged to plan their travel in advance and leave extra time for their journeys.

ScotRail Chief Operating Officer Angus Thom said:

“We’re delighted to support the V&A on what is a significant step forward in the transformation of the Dundee waterfront, and a major new cultural development for Scotland.

“To help people enjoy the experience over the weekend we have plans in place to help them get to and from both the evening event and the official opening itself.

“We expect our services to be busy so people should plan their journeys in advance, check train times regularly by using our app or the ScotRail website, and make sure they have a ticket before travel.”
