111 Service Diversion

Closure of Newton Church Road

Due to the closure of Newton Church Road for resurfacing Service 111 will follow the diversion via Shawfair on the map above. As a result, we will not be able to serve the bus stops on Millerhill Road or Newton Church Road.

The closure is expected to last for up to 10 days.
We apologise for the inconvenience this will cause our passengers.

Midlothian Council Information - We have arranged for a bus replacement taxi service to be operated by Swift Taxis for the 10-day period of road closure. Taxis will link Newton Village to both the Sheriffhall Park and Ride and Danderhall village.
To use the temporary service, customers should call Swift directly on 0131 660 1031. Operates at the same times as the MH Ring & Go scheme [0700-1900].

Coronavirus - FAQ's

Are you operating a normal service?
Yes we are at the present time as we know many passngers depend on our bus services

How will I know of any changes to bus services?
In the first instance any changes to our services will be posted on Twitter and Facebook, and our dedicated 'Coronavirus' page which can also be viewed on our 'Service Alerts' webpage

What are you doing to keep drivers and passengers safe?
As passengers will know we take great pride in the cleanliness of our buses, and our cleaning regime has been stepped up in recent weeks. We have invested in a 'fogger' which creates an anti-bacterial mist, which although not proven to kill Covid-19 will kill most bacteria spores. This procedure will be carried out at the end of each shift, and left to circulate overnight, on our fleet to further protect our passengers.
Our buses are now fitted with driver protection screens, to ensure our drivers safety and this means they do not have to wear a face covering, unless they wish to do so.
All buses have carried anti-bacterial handwash for use by our drivers for over a year, and we continue to provide this. We now also have hand sanitiser available for our passengers, and encourage it's use.
Drivers have the option of wearing nitrol gloves and / or a face covering if they wish.

Do I have to wear a face covering?
It has been mandatory to wear face coverings on public transport from Monday 22 June with some limited exceptions.

Please come prepared and help us look after yourself and others #StayTravelSafe

How can I pay for my ticket?
We would prefer you to use contactless, but will of course accept cash as the majority of our buses have cash vaults so there are no issues with drivers touching money

Waht can passngers do to help?
We urge passengers to follow NHS guidlines regarding handwashing
We ask that you do not leave tissues on our buses
If there is space please practice social distancing
Please do not travel if you feel inwell or have any symptoms of coronavirus
