Our company

We operate over 70 services in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas of Midlothian and East Lothian and have a fleet of 721 vehicles.

The Lothian Buses name has been used since January 2000. The company remains publicly owned - the major shareholder being The City of Edinburgh Council.


Over 600 low-floor easy-access buses.

We have invested heavily in the Lothian Buses fleet and have a complete low-floor easy-access fleet with an average bus age of just 4.9 years. Lothian Buses now has one of the youngest fleets of buses in the country.

Additionally, we have over 30 open-top buses for our Edinburgh Bus Tours services and 14 specially branded low floor AIRLINK vehicles for use on the dedicated Airport Express service.

We have over 2000 employees, 1500 of whom are drivers.
