It seems as though there is at last going to be some buses usingGeorge Street again, through the reversal of the Central EdinburghTraffic Management Scheme (CETM. See Lothian Buses web site.
Some more changes to the local buses. It’s strange that they are making the 20 circular considering that in July 2003 the took away the last of the circular routes, I wonder what caused their change in mind. The 35 is being extended to the Airport again, yet they don’t seem to be putting it… Continue reading Upcoming Lothian Buses changes
The City of Edinburgh Council, Lothian Buses and Colin Buchanan are doing the “Edinburgh Travel Survey” to make a model of travel in Edinburgh. The only reason I found out about the suvey was because I just happened to to be on a 22. Take a look at http://www.edinburghtravelsurvey.com. To see for yourself what the… Continue reading Edinburgh Travel Survey
I’m fed up with the very high frequency of the Lothian Buses 22 and 26 in Edinburgh, especially when there are so many other routes that are so low frequency, such as the 15(A), 18, 32, etc.Maybe if everyone were to stop using the 22 and 26 whenever possible and use alternatives instead, maybe the… Continue reading Stop using the Lothian Buses 22

The dispute with Lothian Buses drivers is now over. Great, I’ll get the refund for the inconvenience of buses not turning up. I have noticed that they are trying to bull-doze through the trams, when there are far too many buses runing in the place that the trams are due to run.
I’m Glad I didn’t bother renewing my Lothian Buses bus pass at the end of last week. Why? Quite simple. Had I taken the bus today I would have missed the two connections because the 37A was running on time. The shortest route by bus to Roslin for me, is to take the 18 to Kaimes… Continue reading Glad I didn’t renew my bus pass
I have just noticed on Lothian Buses website: http://www.lothianbuses.co.uk/news/serviceChanges.asp that they will be running a Saturday service from 19 July 2005. It’s a real shame for those who live out in the sticks.
Lothian Buses have come out with a leaflet detailing the changes from the 19 June 2005 regarding the City of Edinburgh Council’s so called Central Edinburgh Traffic Management Scheme (CETM). There will be even MORE buses on Princes Street. Grrr. All the buses via George Street or Queen Street are being diverted away over to… Continue reading Edinburgh City Centre
See http://cpol.edinburgh.gov.uk/getdoc_ext.asp?DocId=65425for the minutes of the meeting that the petition to get the 18 increased in frequency, increased hours and extended to Fort Kinnaird was handed in. It does not mention anywhere that a petition had been handed in!
