41 Bus and Cramond/Gyle Link Bus

9 May 2023

Lothian have announced a series of route changes, which will take effect from the end of May.

The 41 service is ending, but a new 47 service will run on the route of the current 41 between Cammo / Cramond / Davidson's Mains / Blackhall / Craigleith and then head on to the West End.

Also, Lothian has announced extra morning and evening services on the 43 to help with capacity levels at peak times.

There has also been progress at last on a bus link between Cramond and the Gyle.

Local Lib Dem councillor Ed Thornley said, "We are delighted to be able to say that after years of work, Council officers have said they will tender for a new supported service running between Cramond and the Gyle

"We hope this service will be up and running by the end of the year, though it's exact route and timings remain to be determined.

"We know many local people signed the Lib Dem team's petition years ago on this and have been keen to see the old 64 route restored. This is the first step, but hopefully this will get off the ground quickly. We'll do our best to keep folks updated."

It is understood that Lothian are interested in running this route, but the tender will be open to applications from other operators.
