Bus Delays are "Unacceptable"

9 May 2023

The 31 bus service is proving an unreliable service in East Craigs, with many residents telling us that the bus has been extremely late or not turned up at all. 

Local Lib Dem councillor Ed Thornley said, "East Craigs has only one bus that residents can easily access - many are not able to walk through to Drum Brae for the 26. The 31 is a vital link for community, and it needs to improve.

Local Lib Dem councillor Robert Aldridge added, "We know there have been significant problems for bus providers across Scotland, and on top of this, Lothian tell us that major delays at roadworks are also adding to the problem.

"However, this is rapidly becoming one of the least reliable bus services in the city, and that cannot be allowed to continue."

There are also problems with the 12, leaving people standing in the rain and cold at the Gyle Centre for up to an hour. We are working with Lothian to try and improve this service too.
