The travel app from Lothian has everything you need to get around Edinburgh with Lothian Buses and Edinburgh Trams.

Open up the app and we'll show you live times for the three nearest stops near you
An interactive map shows you every bus and tram stop around you - just tap on one to bring up an instant departure board - perfect for comparing services at different stops.

Want to get somewhere fast? Just search for a place, address, business name... anything, and we'll show you the best way to get there. You can also search for routes - we'll even show you if a bus is nearby and show you it moving on a map.

Plan your commute, nights out or even just a trip to the shops - we use a real-time journey planning system that takes network delays into account when showing you the best way to get to your destination, with full step-by-step instructions.

We've made it easy to let your friends and family know when you'll arrive - just track your bus using the app and share a link by email, Twitter, Facebook or WhatsApp. Your friends can track your bus online (they don't need the app) and see when you'll arrive.

Using the companion m-ticket app, you can purchase single tickets and DAYtickets for many of our services.

Finally, please note that the app requires data access and works best with GPS on. Please be aware the continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

What’s New

Got us around the city quick and easy

If you are going to Edinburgh, or live there, you can’t go wrong with this app! Tells you exactly when and where to catch the buses or trams plus gives a GPS walking map to get the specific destination ..perfect travel companion! Used it each night we were in the city to plan the next day’s outing(s), then would just press take me home when ready!! M-ticket app great addition also

thoughtful, good design

Wish I could hug the developer, designers, and thinkers behind this app. This is the first year I’ve lived in Edi & been in a city where I use public transportation daily. This app is intuitive, thoughtful, and well designed and seamless embedded in my everyday life. Thank you all for the hard work you’ve put into this!

Can’t buy tickets?

It’s spot on for bus timings but why do I need a separate app to purchase bus fares? On my first trip to Edinburgh, this was confusing and when I downloaded the mfares app, I couldn’t get a single ticket because the minimum spend was £4. I had to walk and a bus driver took pity on me because I just landed from another country and didn’t have exact change, so he gave me a free ride.

Devs-Take a note from Swissrail’s “SBB Mobile” app which does it all in one app and is much more efficient to use.
