East Lothian by Bus 

The East Lothian by Bus map gathers the information from all bus operators in the county which allows users to link up their journey much easier than has been the case in the past, as well as highlighting Park and Ride facilities and train stations. Each bus operator has their own colour on the map, making it easy to differentiate between them, and they will be placed at all main bus stops in the county.

East Lothian Bus Passenger Charter

In April 2014, East Lothian Council in partnership with five local bus operators and RELBUS (Rural East Lothian Bus Users) have jointly launched a Bus Passenger Charter. The aim of the charter is to provide a clear commitment to passengers of the standards of service required and provided by bus services across the county.


How it Works

One-Ticket is available in two different formats: ‘Bus only’ or ‘Rail + Bus’. For the rail stations and/or travel areas covered, please download the One Ticket map.

A unique travel scheme offering you unlimited travel on buses in East Central Scotland. Bus only One-Tickets include your own chosen travel area plus all travel areas of a lower number (eg travel area 3 covers bus travel in areas 3 + 2 + 1a + 1), except when you purchase a travel area 4 ticket. This product includes travel areas 4 + 1a + 1. To view all travel areas please download the One Ticket leaflet.

Rail and Bus One-Tickets:
