    Scottish Citylink

    Hopefully this is still on topic but has anyone had any experience using the citylink explorer pass? I was considering trying one as it looks pretty good value as long as you are travelling decent distances (Glasgow to Skye for example). The website links what looks like a slightly outdated...

    Lothian Buses and ECB Discussion

    According to finlaysmith.co.uk all the B8s are now at Central (excluding 1091) so it looked like they will all be out next week sometime.

    Lothian Buses and ECB Discussion

    I remember back in 2014 Lothian had plans to switch the north/west ends of the 22/25, such that the 22 would terminate at restalrig and the 25 at Ocean terminal. Not necessarily saying it's the best idea but it would certainly give a good route for the new buses to run on (riccarton to ocean...

    West Lothian buses

    I realise Lothian don't really do route branding anymore but it wouldn't take much effort to put some vinyls on the side showcasing the route. It's a good way to advertise their new services to the public and probably cheaper than these radio adverts they seem to be doing. If they want to make...

    Lothian Buses and ECB Discussion

    They could in theory reduce the 26 to every 10 minutes and use the current buses on the 31 since it still passes the zoo. However, I'm expecting some at least to appear on the 37 which from my experience is one of the most busy services from central. Hopefully the 16 too which is generally...

    Lothian Buses and ECB Discussion

    Another interesting peak time working is the 7:36 service 45 from Kings Road which runs to Gray's loan (usually screened for tollcross or more recently Churchill) before turning into a 38 to the royal, starting at myreside at around 8:20. From there it runs out of service and starts the 69. It...

    West Lothian buses

    One thing I think Lothian Country could improve on is linking up their buses with universities/colleges in Edinburgh - for example extending the 275 to Sighthill (Napier and Edinburgh College) is just along the road from Edinburgh park but could probably attract a few more passengers. It would...

    West Lothian buses

    Personally I have mixed feelings about the zone system, I like knowing the bus fare before I travel but unfortunately it means short cross boundary journeys can be very expensive. Personal opinion but I think they should rename the zones 1-6, rather than this ''citywest/countywest" naming which...

    Lothian Buses and ECB Discussion

    Those buses will be either for upgrading the 63 to Lothian country, improving the quality of buses on the 43 or for a new service - perhaps one from town to kirkliston with first cutting the 38 to every 30 minutes? I can't imagine them going any further west than that. Also: PM1007722/16...

    It also appears that the 29 is being extended to silverknowes promenade. The 49 is stated to go via the Wisp - is this possibly an indication of it being rerouted through danderhall? Another minor change also is the 200 is going to be serving Ingliston P&R.

    I notice the 36 appears to be being cut back from the gyle to now terminate again at Glenlockhart: PM0000002/71 Registered LOTHIAN BUSES LIMITED Route: Edinburgh, Ocean Terminal to Edinburgh, Napier Craiglockhart Campus via Lothian Road, Tollcross Service number: 36 Service type: Normal...

    Lothian Buses and ECB Discussion

    I think the original plan was for the B5LHs to go on the 25 and the B5TLs to go on the 31 from what I have read although this may have changed. I imagine the refurbished B9s will mostly operate out of central - the 8 and 41 operate through air quality management zones so they may be an option...

    Edinburgh Sightseeing by Bus

    That's a good question and lots of Edinburgh can be seen without paying lots on the tour buses. Getting to the Royal mile, Dynamic Earth and Holyrood park and palace is easy by the service 6 from Hanover Street (every 30 minutes) or the skylink 300 bus from tollcross (every 12 minutes). The 300...
