Lothian Buses Critical Service Change: 12 July 2020

Lothian Buses has announced its intention to introduce an update to its critical services network from Sunday 12 July 2020.

Nigel Serafini, Interim Managing Director at Lothian Buses, said:

Over the last few months, our teams on the frontline and behind the scenes have continued to go above and beyond to meet the needs of those that required necessary travel. We are incredibly proud and thankful for their efforts and support during what continues to be an incredibly challenging operational time.

As restrictions begin to relax and businesses gradually reopen, bus travel will have a crucial role to play in our city’s recovery and we are delighted to be able to introduce a network change which will provide vital links and increased capacity across all routes as customers begin a gradual return to public transport.

We have also introduced a series of measures to help inform customers of all the necessary steps to safe travel on our network – before travelling please read current advice and guidance on our dedicated webpage www.lothianbuses.com/help-us-to-help-you.

We would encourage all customers to plan their journeys in advance using our app or the journey planner on our website.

Once again my thanks continue to go to each and every member of our team for their commitment and dedication and also to our customers who have shown an enormous amount of support and understanding during this time.

From Monday customers can view updated timetables on Lothian’s website and from Wednesday customers can plan journeys on Lothian’s website or through the Lothian app which offers journey planning tools and real-time service updates, all integrated with Google Maps. It can be downloaded from tfeapp.com.
