If you ever find yourself in Edinburgh, you’ll most probably end up on a bus at some point during your stay. Although Edinburgh has plans for a new tram service, its a few years off yet. Until then over 250,000 of us will rely on Lothian buses to get us to our destinations every day. And some...

“Even my BUS PASS is clever”

published 01/04/2003

ProCheap, convenient, plentiful during the day.

ConsScarce after 6pm, smelly and rude people.

The next time somebody tells you that you look like the back end of a bus, think twice before you bash them on the head with a telephone directory. Liz Hurley, our very own British sex kitten, has allegedly tried to sue Lothian Regional Transport (LRT) for decking it’s new bus fleets out in a...

Lothian buses vary almost as much as the routes that they supply. Generally they are clean and punctual, but a few of them are fairly manky, smelly and horribly late (or non-existant). They serve most areas of Edinburgh but are really designed for people to get from A to town then from town to B rather than direct A to B. They have been slowly pushing up the prices: Child: 60p Young Person: 65p Adult: £1

Hi like many others I'm sure you must be concerned about the amount of LRT busses that are jumping red lights, only this morning 17/11/08 at 6.58 my car was almost hit by a LRT bus turning right from the bridges into the Royal mile whilst running a red light. I don't know the calibre of driver they are now employing, but I'm glad to say im not one of them. Your going down hill LRT

I have given this company an excellent rating because whenever I've been on their buses the drivers are mostly helpful. I was on a First Bus the other day and to be honest it reminded me why I usually travel Lothian Buses. I got on the First Bus because I was running late for work owing to...

Avoid at all costs during festival time! Appauling at this time,I waited for over 45 minutes for a bus that never showed up, and another time it was delayed for over half an hour, i called the main office they said 'its festival time, expect delays' and hung up! Bus drivers are also very rude, one time i asked if it was heading to a certain place he replied 'can you not read?' On a positive note, there are many many buses, they are quite frequent however do expect delays during the festival time

I have to say that there are more LRT buses than First Group but I have found that the LRT drivers are the surliest and least helpful. My friend and I no longer rush to get on a bus which is already standing at the bus stop as the majority of the drivers will not let you get on. I sometimes...
