About this app

The travel app from Lothian has everything you need to get around Edinburgh with Lothian Buses and Edinburgh Trams.

Open up the app and we'll show you live times for the three nearest stops near you
An interactive map shows you every bus and tram stop around you - just tap on one to bring up an instant departure board - perfect for comparing services at different stops.

Want to get somewhere fast? Just search for a place, address, business name... anything, and we'll show you the best way to get there. You can also search for routes - we'll even show you if a bus is nearby and show you it moving on a map.

Plan your commute, nights out or even just a trip to the shops - we use a real-time journey planning system that takes network delays into account when showing you the best way to get to your destination, with full step-by-step instructions.

We've made it easy to let your friends and family know when you'll arrive - just track your bus using the app and share a link by email, Twitter, Facebook or WhatsApp. Your friends can track your bus online (they don't need the app) and see when you'll arrive.

Using the companion m-ticket app, you can purchase single tickets and DAYtickets for many of our services.

Finally, please note that the app requires data access and works best with GPS on. Please be aware the continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Really quite poor. Shows conflicting expected bus times one second to the next. I am having to go out and go back into the app 2 or 3 times, just to makes sure what it is telling me stays the same. I have missed many a bus thanks to this app. The exact opposite from the intended outcome. Doesn't update fast enough and there is no refresh button.

Im so sorry to be negative as as this used to be very good, but I can understand what happened or why it has been changed! The map function isnt fit for purpose anymore - it exists as a tiny strip at the top of the route plan- and the ability track the location of the bus we are waiting for has gone. The bus stop locations also need to be updated as otherwise you may get your timings wrong. Otherwise this is a very useful app for planning your journeys ahead of time and finding bus routes.

Latest update has caused the app to crash immediately on my pixel 2 with Android 9. This isn't the first time an update has made the app unusable for me, once there's a stable release I'm going to have to turn off updates entirely just so I can be sure I'll know when a bus is coming. Considering half the bus stops in my neighborhood don't have any schedules up or working trackers, this was one of the few ways to know how to get anywhere on time. Very disappointed.
