We will be operating normal route out of Edinburgh. During the Part closure, which is expected to be in place for approximately 9 months these services will stop on Chambers St, The Mound george street on the diverted route.

3rd Apr - 26th Jun
Like bus operators across the UK, we are currently feeling the impact of increased covid cases, self-isolation, and a shortage of labour throughout our workforce. This is resulting in journey cancelations across our bus network. To ensure we are delivering frequent and reliable journeys we have been left with no alternative than to temporarily amend our current bus times. The service changes will take effect from Monday 04 April and are scheduled to be in place till 26 June at the latest. Normally when network changes take place it is to meet a demand in customer usage, whilst this is still a key factor, the main reasons we are making these changes is to ensure we are utilising our driving team and ensure the full network has a level of service.

Services H1, H2 and X95 will operate from Albert Bridge, Wilton Path, Princes street and Dovemount place for Mart street. This results in Sainsbury’s not being served during this closure. We apologise for this inconvenience which is out with our control.
