Transport for Edinburgh is the group that brings together Lothian Buses, Edinburgh Trams and Edinburgh Bus Tours and is pleased to offer a fully accessible range of services. Make public transport part of your day out.
Lothian Buses vehicles are low entrance, so can “kneel” to kerb height to give step-free access where possible. They have a retractable boarding ramp for wheelchair access and are completely flat on the lower deck so there are no internal steps to worry about. Vehicles are fitted with high visibility handrails and have a dedicated wheelchair space. For more information please visit lothianbuses.com/access.
Edinburgh Trams vehicles are similarly accessible, offering low entrances throughout, high visibility handrails, two dedicated wheelchair / buggy spaces per tram, dedicated disabled priority seats and passenger alert buttons signposted in Braille for blind and partially sighted tram users. Wheelchair users are asked to please enter the middle carriage, which has dedicated disabled access. A wheelchair symbol on the tram stop platform indicates where to wait. For more information please visit edinburghtrams.com/access.
While you’re in the city, why not hop on – hop off and discover the best of Edinburgh with Edinburgh Bus Tours. Hear about Scotland’s capital, old and new with either a live guide or recorded commentary available in up to 10 different languages. Modern, open top buses are equipped with entrance ramps and wheelchair spaces, offering easy access to all aboard the Edinburgh Tour, City Sightseeing and Majestic Tour. Guide dogs and assistance dogs are welcome to join their owners and for hearing impaired persons, screens are available on the lower decks of City Sightseeing and Majestic Tour buses so that information available via the commentaries can also be read.
