Network Changes from 23rd November 2015

 

From Monday 23rd November 2015 Scottish Citylink is making some changes to some of our routes and journeys. This is being done to ensure we are delivering services that better reflect the travel habits of our customers and to allow us to continue operating a strong and stable coach network.

We are continuing to serve all of the locations we currently serve. There may be small timing changes on other services, to improve reliability and in response to customer feedback, and we would advise you to check our timetables here before travelling.

Printed timetables for all services will be available by Monday 26th October 2015 from all of our usual outlets.

The last service from Edinburgh will now be at 1915 Monday to Saturday and the 0905 journey from Edinburgh will now also operate on a Saturday.
