Monday 26th April is the next key date for the easing of Covid restrictions in Scotland (Scotland is on a different roadmap out of restrictions to England) and although there will be a bit more freedom at the current time there will be no increase in services on Edinburgh Trams. One change on board the trams, however, is the return of Ticket Inspectors.
Edinburgh Trams services will continue to operate every 15 minutes for the time being between the Airport and York Place to allow those who need to travel by tram to do so. The trams continue to be regularly sanitised (as do the stops) and windows on board will be kept open to help minimise the risk of Covid-19 spreading.
Ticket Inspectors are also back on the trams although they will be keeping their distance with “no contact” checking.
Lea Harrison, Managing Director of Edinburgh Trams, said: “We’re keeping a close eye on demand and adding additional services where necessary. We hope to return to full service very soon as Scotland eases out of lockdown over the coming weeks.”
In addition the TravelHub at Shandwick Place reopens from Monday 26th April for Ridacard customers only. All other TravelHubs remain closed and there will be special measures in place for those who do need to visit the shop at Shandwick Place.
