Mobile ticketing

A new way to pay using your phone.

With the official Transport for Edinburgh app, you can buy and load your phone with m-tickets for Edinburgh Trams and Lothian Buses. Your m-tickets can then be activated and used as you need them.

You can use DAYtickets and DAY&NIGHTtickets on Edinburgh Trams (city fare zone only). Lothian Buses SINGLEtickets can’t be used on Edinburgh Trams, but you can buy Single tickets, for journeys in either the City or Airport fare zones from our app.
