Changes to the Peninsula bus service

Valid from Monday, Jan 28, 2019 12:00 AM

Following a consultation in 2018, the Peninsula bus service (route 18) is changing. The consultation confirmed that residents wanted two services to operate via Musselburgh to allow for easier access to schools. We are now putting the proposed change into practice.

What has changed?

As of January 28 2019 there will be a variation to the normal route, with two services per day detouring through Musselburgh instead of continuing along Portobello Road. The services running the variation to the normal route will be:

  • Portobello – City departing Portobello 7.47am (this service replaces the weekday 7.57am service)
  • City – Portobello departing from the City at 3.08pm (this is an additional weekday service)

The new service will follow the route laid out in the map below.
