Normal tram service to resume in Edinburgh!

Its been a long time coming but Monday 7th June will see a normal service resume all day, every day on Edinburgh Trams – the first time in 16 months that a full service will have run! With trams running from every seven minutes throughout the day this will add extra capacity to the network as most of Scotland moves into Level 1 with the easing of restrictions and the expected increase in passenger numbers that will bring.

The first tram from Gyle Centre to York Place will be at 0500 with the first departure from Edinburgh Airport at 0618. The first service from York Place to the Airport will be at 0530. Services then end at 2248 from Edinburgh Airport to York Place and 2330 from York Place to Edinburgh Airport.

Lea Harrison, Managing Director of Edinburgh Trams, said: “Resuming our normal timetable doubles the services we were previously operating, and will help our customers feel more comfortable when travelling by tram. We’re still urging customers to respect the Scottish Government’s guidance when travelling by public transport, which includes wearing a face covering (unless exempt) and maintaining 1m physical distancing, wherever possible. If you think the tram is too busy, please wait for the next one, which will now only be seven minutes later.”
