Media Enquiries

If you’re interested in filming or photography, or have a media enquiry, here’s the information you’ll need.

Filming and photography

With a history stretching back nearly a century, its no surprise we’re often approached to provide locations and vehicles for TV programmes, films and photography shoots. In fact, our buses have appeared in productions for the BBC, Channel 4 and Vodafone among others.

We’re always happy to help with film and photography requests, so please give us as much information as you can. Our Edinburgh-based Communications team will be on hand with advice on the best filming locations and can tell you if any fees are applicable – local knowledge goes a long way! Just complete the form below, give us about 7 days to process your request and we’ll be in touch to discuss your project.
