Lothiancountry Fare Review 2020

Lothiancountry has today (January 9) announced that fares will be revised across the company as of Sunday February 2, 2020.

The fare review will see an increase on Lothiancountry’s services with a 10p increase on all Adult single tickets. Child single fares across all zones will also be increasing by 10p, however up to three children under five can travel for free if accompanied by any fare paying customer.

Adult daytickets for cityWEST, countryWEST and lothianWEST will increase by 50p, with the child daytickets equivalent seeing a 20p increase. There will be no increase on any of our Family daytickets.

There will be a £1 increase on Adult Network DAYtickets and a 50p increase on Child Network DAYtickets.

Green Arrow Adult & Child Return Tickets are withdrawn and lothianWEST Day Tickets will now be valid for travel on this service.

Nigel Serafini Commercial Director at Lothian, said: “Lothiancountry is committed to providing environmentally sustainable, best value travel. As our operating costs continue to rise and we continue to invest in fleet, people, training and our customer offering, we will be making changes to fares from 2 February.

“98p of every £1 we receive in fares goes directly back into the running of our business and provision of services. Across the last decade we have invested heavily in cleaner, greener buses for the benefit of all our customers and our capital city, lessening the impact on the environment, while continuing to develop and provide a comprehensive network of services across the Edinburgh city region.

“As well as continuing our investment in new environmentally friendly vehicles across 2020, we are currently in the process of renewing our Real Time Customer Information system. This system plays a vital role in helping us monitor and control services, as well as allowing customers to track bus arrivals.

“Our revised fares continue to represent excellent value for money and remain amongst the lowest in the UK.”
