    convenient, easy to use, and i love how the interior of the bus matches the Gothic feel of the city. :) Also the travel from the airport up to the last stop.at the Scott Monument was like a free preciew of what to expect. We stayed on thr upper level and had the most beautiful views!!

    Why would you ever go from the airport to Edinburgh city centre any other way. If you get an Uber £25 each way. This was my first time on the bus as I’ve always got taxis. Now I’m wondering why. So simple. So easy. So comfortable. Drops you right in town (actually dropped me right outside my hotel as I was staying in St Andrews Sq and that’s the last stop. Brilliant.

    Couldn't fault this service. Runs every 10 minutes straight from the airport and directly into town. Plenty of room for bags and luggage. Also has free wifi and charging ports which was handy. I also liked that there was a screen that tells you the names of the stops, so if you're anxious like me, you know beforehand when you're going to be getting off.
