Your Bus Service
What’s happening with my bus service?
From 17 July 2017, Perryman’s Buses and Borders Buses merged as one brand, Borders Buses.
Why the name change?
By bringing both brands together we can be more efficient and make better use of resources. It also means we can expand the bus network and improve your customer offering.
Are tickets transferable?
Where there are common sections of routes, tickets are transferable.
This includes service X95 and 73 (between Galashiels and Selkirk only), service X95 and H1/H2 (Hawick town boundaries only), service 60 and 67 (between any identical location on route, for eg. Berwick to Galashiels), service 51/52 and X95 (Edinburgh to Galashiels), service X62 and 60/67/68 (between Galashiels and Melrose only), service 70 and 60/67/68 (Langlee), service 71 and 60/67/68 (between Galashiels and Melrose only). Service 61 and 60 (between Galashiels and Earlston only) and service 67 and 60/67/68 (between Galashiels and Earlston/St. Boswells only and Galashiels and Leaderfoot).
Have fare prices changed?
To provide best value and for consistency all fares are the same price on common lines of route.
Have ticket typed changed?
We made some changes such as introducing 10 Journey tickets. We are currently working on Borders Buses ticket offering with the aim of introducing a simplified ticket range for customers.
4 Weekly, Annual and promotional tickets on offer once our new mobile app is launched at the end of September.

Will the timetables change?

No. All on street timetables and leaflets will be re-branded when services are being updated or a re-print is required.
What will happen with the vehicles?
