In the event of adverse weather etc causing disruption to our routes in the first instance information will be posted in the Facebook panel to the right below


Fare Increase from Monday 4th July 2022

Due to ever increasing costs, particularly fuel, our fares will increase by 10p for shorter journeys and up to 20p for longer journeys.
This is the first time we have increased our fares since October 2018. A fare increase was planned in May 2020 but was cancelled due to the COVID lockdown.

The Latest addition to our fleet

Fleet No 341 - YX22 OGF entered service at 0600 this morning on our 111 Service the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.
It is an ADL Enviro 200 MMC to exactly the same specification as the three new Enviro's which joined our fleet in 2021.
The only difference is that it is slightly shorter to provide a more suitable bus for some quieter journeys on our 111 service, where it will be predominately used.
It is fitted with the latest Euro 6 engine and this coupled with 'smart charging' and 'stop - start' technology means it meets 'Low Emission Bus' status.
It was built to our specification by Falkirk based Alexander Dennis and features a dedicated wheelchair bay along with USB charging points at every seatbelted seat and free WiFi.

A Low Emission Fleet

Following the completion of a retrofit program last week our entire operational fleet of buses now meet a minimum of Euro VI emissions.
Our newest buses already exceeded this standard, by being certified to the higher 'Low Emission Bus' standard. This now ensures that every one of our buses which passes through the Air Quality Management Area in Musselburgh meets the very latest emission standards.
The retrofitted exhaust systems, supplied by Eminox, help reduce both nitrogen dioxide and particulate emissions and bring previously Euro V models up to the latest Euro VI standards.

101 Haddington Town Service Timetables

Service 101B will reintroduce a service to the Florabank, Herdmanflat, Traprain Terrace and the Riverside Drive area's with a connection to Haddington Retail Park and will run up to once an hour.

The new timetable valid from 4th October is available onboard our buses and here- Haddington Town Service

101 Haddington Town Service Extension

In order to end speculation, and passenger concern, we can confirm that we intend extending our 101 Town Service to a new bus stop beside the Aldi Store at the new retail park around the time the shop moves.
The existing 'Nungate Link' will be extended so that it connects passengers to the town centre, the Community Hospital and the new retail park. We are also looking to return the 101 service back to some areas previously served. Full details will be announced in due course.
After some initial reluctance East Lothian Council have agreed to site a new bus stop on the delivery road next to the zebra crossing and approximately 10 metres from the access ramp and steps outside Aldi. We would like to thank Councillor John McMillan for his help in securing this new stop as we felt the existing stops on the main road, which are over 200m from the shop entrance, were too far for many passengers.
We are working with various parties to advertise the town centre at the Retail Park with the aim to encourage shoppers to visit the town centre by parking at the retail park and taking the bus into Haddington. For some time we have offered free advertising on internal screens on our newer buses to members of the Haddington Business Partnership and we want to make that offer to all businesses in the town centre.

Additional Bus Stops in Musselburgh High St

Our latest new buses

Tomorrow our two latest buses will take to the road on our 108 Service.
Whilst not the best time to launch new vehicles, they were ordered almost a year ago and due last summer, they will help reduce our carbon footprint and aid social distancing on all our routes.

Travel advice for service's 108, 111 and 118

Following a conference call on Wednesday 18th November with Transport Scotland and East Lothian Council it was confirmed that we should continue to operate routes 108, 111 and 118 as normal.
Even though these services enter a level 3 area, and East Lothian is moving to level 2, it was agreed that there is still a need for essential travel for work and shopping.
We do however recommend that passengers Stay Safe and Support Local in East Lothian.
