Some fares to go up on Edinburgh Trams

Some fares for travel on Edinburgh Trams are to increase from 25th February although most of the popular fares will remain at the same level. The increases in place are the first applied for two years and are necessary because of an increase in operating costs.

Single City Zone tickets will go up from £1.60 to £1.70 whilst an adult single the Airport will cost £6 (an increase of 50p).

Meanwhile City Zone return tickets are frozen at £3.20 and Airport open return tickets are also held at £8.50. Day tickets will also remain at their current levels of £4 for the City Zone and £9 to include the section to the Airport. Child fares will also see no change.

Lea Harrison, Managing Director of Edinburgh Trams, said: “This is the first review of fares in two years and changes are required due to increases in our operating costs. This will also allow us to continue investment in service improvements such as increased frequencies and contactless payment systems.”

    Lothian Buses, the tram operator really are going out of their way to make Airport fares prohibitive. Last year, they introduced “new” bus services 200 and 300 to the airport, the latter a direct replacement for Lothian Bus service 35 BUT with a massive fare increase. No doubt about it, Edinburgh must “boast” one of the most expensive public transport services to an airport in the UK !
