Explore the beautiful and historic borders towns and villages from Edinburgh. We've teamed up with Scotrail to introduce a Borders Explorer ticket.

The ticket includes a return rail trip from Edinburgh – Galashiels or Tweedbank station and unlimited day travel across the Borders Buses network.

The Borders Explorer ticket can be purchased from ScotRail staffed stations and on the Borders train. Customers can also contact ScotRail on 0344 811 0141. It is not available to purchase on bus.

Simply present your return Borders Explorer train ticket to your bus driver upon arrival in the Borders and you will be issued with an unlimited Borders Buses day ticket.
