[UPDATED 09/02/2021: From Sunday 14 February, further changes will be implemented to EastCoastbuses and Lothiancountry networks. Please click here for further information.]
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.
