Statement from Transport Convener on Queensferry bus services

Following a joint meeting today between City of Edinburgh Council and Lothian Buses representatives to discuss the issue of bus services to Queensferry, Transport Convener Councillor Lesley Hinds has outlined the next steps.

Cllr Hinds said: “We’ve had a very constructive meeting today with Lothian Buses to discuss the potential ongoing provision of bus services to Queensferry and Dalmeny.   

"As a Council, we understand that these are very important routes and services and we appreciate how important it is for the residents of these areas to see the continuation of bus services.

“Lothian Buses have agreed to come back to the Council within the next two to three weeks, once they have collected and analysed passenger loadings relevant to the routes to see if they can develop a commercially viable proposition.  

"In the meantime, Council officers will also explore potential bus priority measures that could be introduced to help improve journey times and make the services as reliable and efficient as possible.”
