From Sunday 24 January, Lothian will introduce a revised timetable across most services on the Lothian Buses, Lothian Country and East Coast Buses networks to continue to deliver for those customers who still require essential travel.
Our teams have been collating and reviewing feedback received from our customers and drivers in recent weeks, alongside in-depth analysis of new travel patterns generated by the current lockdown.
Key changes for the network will include:
- On weekdays, additional morning journeys will be introduced on most services to provide additional capacity for key workers.
- Some services will see a slight reduction in evening frequencies as a result of lower levels of customer demand.
- Service 3 will serve Dalkeith Campus from Monday to Friday.
- Service 37 will serve Easter Bush Campus from Monday to Friday, running every 30 minutes.
- Service 47B will only operate at peak times in the morning and evening from Monday to Friday.
- Service 15 will continue to serve Easter Bush Campus during the day from Monday to Saturday.
- Services 45, X25, X26, X29, X31, X33, X37 and X44 will remain suspended until further notice.
Updated plans for the Lanark Road, Longstone Road and Inglis Green Road route have been made public by CEC. They say that following feedback received the measures have been adapted to maximise the available parking as far as safely can be provided with loading bays being retained. A letter will be sent to residents along the route with a link to the plans which will be added to the Council website. The maps are available linked below. These files are 3Mb each.
