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.
SATNAV FOR BUS & TRAM
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.
SHARE YOUR JOURNEY
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.
The Transport for Edinburgh app now knows which bus you're on, and when you'll arrive at your destination.
It's something we've all done: boarded the bus, sat down and wondered - when will I reach my stop? You could search for the bus number in the app, but now there's an easier way - as soon as you board one of our buses, you'll see which bus it is right on the app's Home Screen, with live tracking for all upcoming stops.
This works with Next Stop Announcements on TFE Talk as well - now you don't need to type in the service number and destination to get announcements, the app knows which bus you're on automatically.
Ratings and Reviews
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!
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.
