A bit late in the day and I don't think they will get anywheree with this....just one of the "benefits" from 30 years of bus deregulation!

Does seem a ludicrous situation where Lothian will have 10 buses an hour zipping along through Milton Bridge whilst Auchendinny has nothing, sure I read its all about shaving a couple of minutes off the journey time to make the 40 a more reliable service.. Passenger numbers on it are not great but then its a village so the number of potential passengers is always going to be quite low...

A mixture of Groundhog Day, On The Buses and The Neverending Story is what this looks like:

Will they ever finish the roads in Ladywood and is Rullion Road next?

Now delayed until the 19th!

Fares increased yesterday on Firstbus so the X62 now matches the 1.60 of Lothian, bang goes the cheaper run into Edinburgh...

It's a pity about the rise in fares. However, since I started using Firstbus as well as Lothian buses, I have noticed that every time a Firstbus stops to pick up a few passengers, it is frustratingly slow. I notice that they have frozen the fares for those using the mobile app though. Anything that will speed up the loading of passengers will be a good thing.

Rullion Road works to start on Monday 27th (allegedly) so time for that long detour all around the town and the joys of going up / down Cuiken Terrace
