Extra bus journeys coming this summer!

From July we will be increasing the number of journeys we operate on routes across your bus network. The changes include; 

Monday 03 July, service X62 which operates between Galashiels and Edinburgh, via Innerleithen, Peebles, and Penicuik will increase from hourly to half-hourly on Saturdays. It currently operates every 30 minutes Monday to Friday.  

Monday 24 July we will make improvements to service B1 which serves Spittal, Highcliffe, and Rampart Business Park. The service will be extended to meet the demand for people traveling to Loaning Meadows Retail Park, the new retail outlet, home to Aldi Foodstore, Home Bargains, Greggs, and The Food Warehouse. 

Service 267 and Service 464 will have minor amends to improve reliability and connectivity. 

Service X95 will increase from two hourly to hourly between Galashiels and Edinburgh Bus Station, Monday to Saturday.  We have also added a later journey from Galashiels to Hawick departing Galashiels Interchange at 22.50.

All new bus times will be available on our timetables page. (please make sure you change your date of travel to after the 24 July to see the new timetable).

We are pleased to be launching our customer survey. The survey should hopefully provide a better understanding of your travel movements following the pandemic, this includes the increase in home and hybrid working, as well as those of you under 22 or over 60 now entitled to free bus travel.  

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey, your feedback will shape future network changes, you can access it here.
