Additional bus stops to be introduced in Musselburgh High StreetTwo new stops are being added to help ease congestion and improve reliability

Musselburgh High Street

From Thursday 29 April, new stopping arrangements will come into effect in Musselburgh High Street affecting customers of Lothian Buses, East Coast Buses and Prentice of Haddington.

Bus stops in the town’s thoroughfare are being relocated as part of a project by East Lothian Council in a bid to ease congestion and reduce journey times.

Lothian will have a supervisor available on the High Street on Thursday and Friday during the day to help customers find the right bus stop, should they encounter any difficulties.

Ian Bieniowski, Network Performance Manager at Lothian Buses, said: “Lothian Buses remains committed to supporting local communities and we welcome the changes to bus stop arrangements on Musselburgh High Street.

“The additional stops will improve access for buses at this busy location, reducing journey times for customers, while also reducing traffic congestion in the town centre.”

This map shows the new stopping arrangements. Details of where stops are located and which services will stop at them are also available below:
