Free new app makes Edinburgh travel even easier…
Travelling around Edinburgh has been made even easier with the launch of Lothian Buses new app, Edinburgh By Bus.
Created by the digital team at Lothian Buses, the Edinburgh By Bus app is designed to allow users to identify nearby bus stops wherever they are in the city, highlight best routes to reach their destination as well as live departure dates for the 55 Lothian Buses routes, NIGHTBUSES and AIRLINK across Edinburgh. Users can simply register a current location and desired departure or arrival time.
Tourists can benefit from free audio walking tours and information about Edinburgh Bus Tours individual tours, including ticket prices and detailed map of routes and bus stops. In addition to this, visitors can now enjoy information about city attractions and how to travel to them by bus, and can get ‘home’ to their hotel, B&B or hostel from their current location. App users can even leave reviews of the tours on TripAdvisor with Edinburgh By Bus.
Ian Craig, managing director of Lothian Buses, commented: “We’re delighted to launch this free app which will offer passengers and visitors to the city an even better travel experience across Lothian Buses, NIGHTBUSES, AIRLINK and Edinburgh Bus Tours.
This app is the culmination of a lot of hard work from our teams across a range of Lothian Buses’ services, and we’ve added in a lot of fun extras including free audio walking tours, tourist information and, of course, TripAdvisor reviews.”
Manuela Calchini, Regional Director for VisitScotland said: “All initiatives that help to improve the experience of visitors to Edinburgh are greatly welcomed, with Lothian Buses new app offering a superb array of services that are sure to be of use to locals and visitors alike.”
