Edinburgh free late night trams follow Hogmanay celebrations in being cancelled

Edinburgh Trams have confirmed that their previously announced free overnight trams on New Year’s Eve into New Year’s Day will now not run after new restrictions introduced by the Scottish government saw the Edinburgh Hogmanay celebrations cancelled.

As a result of the cancellation of this event the need for the trams to run overnight has gone and so these free trams will not be running and it will be back to normal hours of operation. On a more positive note the cancellation of the event means it won’t be necessary for trams to turn back at West End so a full service will continue to operate on New Year’s Eve until last trams at 2330 from York Place to Airport and 2248 in the opposite direction.

  • We’ll bring a full round-up of planned Christmas and New Year services across the British Isles just before Christmas.

Although there are extra restrictions now in place in Scotland Santa’s reindeer are still in town! The second of the trams spotted with reindeer names is 275 – still retaining its plainer fleet livery than usual – which is named Cupid on one end and Vixen on the other. Taken at West End this view shows 275 off to the Airport with the Cupid name showing. (Photograph by John Hampton)
