Service change from Sunday 14 February for EastCoastbuses and LothiancountryNew links from Livingston and Bathgate town centre to COVID vaccination centre

Further changes will be implemented to EastCoastbuses and Lothiancountry networks from Sunday 14 February in order to continue aligning routes and timetables to customer travel patterns during the current lockdown.

With the new COVID vaccination centre opening at the Pyramids Business Park, Service 275 will divert to provide new public transport links from Livingston and Bathgate town centre (see maps below for diversion route).

Due to very low levels of customer demand, we will temporarily suspend operation of Service X5, and the frequency of Service 139 will be doubled to every 30-minutes between 9am and 3pm to provide additional capacity for those making essential journeys at this time.

There are no further changes to the Lothian Buses network at this time – for details of current service provision, click here.

Full details, including links to timetables, are available to view below.
