Getting your tickets
Getting tickets is easy. The simplest method for one-off bus journeys is to pay by cash. Make sure you have the correct change! Pop your coins into the hopper at the front, ask the driver for a single ticket and one will be printed out for you to take. If you don’t have the correct money, you can still get a ticket, but you won’t get any change back. If you are going on more than 2 journeys, then it would be cheaper to buy a day ticket. These can be bought on the bus too. You can also use contactless card payments now. If you plan ahead, you can also pre-purchase tickets on the Lothian Buses app, buy pre-loaded cards or scratch cards. View bus ticket types and prices.
Tram ticketing is a bit different from the buses, as you have to buy your ticket before boarding the tram. There are ticket vending machines along the tram route, and they accept cards and cash. All tickets must be used to board within 30 minutes of purchase. View tram ticket types and prices.
Great Public Transport in Edinburgh
The public transport in Edinburgh is reliable, and the drivers are very friendly! They are used to tourists, so don’t feel scared to ask them questions, or to give them a shout when it’s your stop. One thing we do tend to do in Edinburgh is say a cheery “thank you!” as we leave the bus. It’s nice to be nice!
Parliament House Hotel is near many main bus stop hubs, as well as only a short walk from the Waverley Bridge TravelHub. The tram line is also just a few minutes walk away. We’re perfectly situated to allow you to explore everything Edinburgh has to offer. So, book your stay with us and look forward to a fantastic time in Edinburgh.
