Bike friendly journeys

10 months ago Thu 25th Apr 2019

Plan your bike friendly journey in advance. We will update this information as we have it.

Please note that these may be subject to last minute alterations. If this happens we will post changes on our social media pages. 

All journeys on the 253 are bike friendly except 0900 and 1300 from Edinburgh and 1026 and 1426 from Innerwick. Again, these are subject to last minute alterations. 

You can also track your X62/253 bike friendly buses live on the Borders Buses app. Simply click the X62 or 253 on our bus tracker and look for 'BIKE' after the vehicle registration.

We are scheduled to operate the following bike friendly journeys on the X62:
