Park & Ride
Park & Ride services let you park free outside the city centre and take a bus.
Someone else does the driving, it's good for the environment and you don't need to worry about parking in town. We serve five Park & Ride sites around Edinburgh which are all situated on key routes into the centre. All Park & Ride sites have free parking, secure CCTV surveillance and regular, low-floor access bus services: Ingliston, Hermiston, Straiton and Sheriffhall also offer extra buses at peak times and staffed terminal buildings.
Buy your ticket from staffed terminal buildings (where available – change can be given) or from your bus driver (please have exact fare ready as our drivers cannot give change).
All normal Lothian Buses fares, DAYtickets and RIDACARDs are valid on Park & Ride buses, except NIGHTBUSES N25 where special fares apply.
