Transport group National Express has teamed up with DC Thomson to brand 16 new additions of its Dundee fleet with images of Dennis the Menace and Oor Wullie.

The cartoon liveries will hit the streets this week in a bid to brighten up the commute of Dundonians, whist celebrating the artistic heritage of the city.

Oor Wullie celebrated his 75th anniversary last March whilst Dennis the Menace picked up his own free bus pass that same month – after turning 60.

Phil Smith, Managing Director, National Express Dundee, commented, “These buses are a multi-million pound investment in the future of the bus network in Dundee. We are delighted that characters that are an international symbol of pride to Dundee will be on the city’s new buses.

“We’re proud to be working with DC Thomson to promote their great comics and, importantly, the heritage they have created in Dundee. We hope that local people feel a sense of pride when they see the Dennis and Gnasher and Oor Wullie routes travelling around town.”
