    It should be noted that the fare increase applies to
    Lothian Buses olso.

    This is not so bad, as it is the first fare increase for about 3 years. The (unchanged) £1. 50 flat fare is for any distance (either 1 stop or a whole route of up to 18miles on route 26 (Clerwood – Seton Sands) in the city zone. Even with the Day ticket going up to £4.00 it is still the best value around. Note though, that a separate fare structure is in force on Lothian Country Bus routes 104 to Haddington and 113 to Pencaitland.

  3. Colin Symes says:

    Even at £4.00 the day ticket still costs less than three single fares, a bargain for anything more than a return journey on bus or tram in the city zone!
