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.

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

Not real happy

I am not real happy with this app. After spending a week in London with an amazing app to get around, this one just stinks. Too often I get a message that essentially says you can’t get there from here. I can’t see an overview of the system to help me decide which routes I want to take. And it would be really handy to tie this to my ticketing rather than have them separate. Oh! Twice I have been directed to take walks through alleyways or other sketchy areas to get to a bus. No thank you. Safety is more important than the shortest route.

Could not use tickets for another person

I bought 4 tickets for self and spouse round trip. Bus driver said I could only use them for myself. We didn’t have exact change. App requires another app, m-ticket, for ticket purchase. That app has an extensive account setup rigmarole including accepting lengthy privacy policies, so most likely is monetizing your location data. It was quicker to run across the road and purchase something at a newsagent to get change than download and set up the app at the bus stop. Are kids supposed to have their own phones as well?
