Covid-19 Travel Advice
We're Here When You Need Us.
As Covid-19 restrictions gradually ease, you can rely on Edinburgh Trams to be here when you need us. So if you are hitting the shops, heading out to meet family and friends and when it’s time to return to the workplace, our trams are clean and safe to use.
Trams are now running from every 7 minutes between the Airport and City centre throughout the daytime and every 10 minutes in the early morning and late evening.
If you prefer to travel during more quiet periods, the handy graph below shows how busy we expect trams to be throughout the day. Our graph will be updated on a weekly basis based on customer travel patterns from the previous week.
Please remember there are still some simple rules and guidance in place to keep everyone safe when using public transport:
Please remember you must wear a face covering when using the tram. Please be considerate to others. Hidden disabilities or medical conditions may mean not everyone can.
Please respect social distancing and stand apart at the stop.
Use all available doors - the single doors at each end of the tram are not currently in use.
Tram doors will open automatically, then board one at a time. If the tram is too busy to maintain social distancing please be responsible and do not board.
Before and after travelling and touching your face covering, sanitise or wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
We're all in this together please be kind and considerate to other customers and colleagues.
For social distancing please use all the available space to keep no less than 1m apart. If you feel the tram is too busy and you do not feel safe, do not board or disembark and wait for the next tram.
To keep our colleagues safe some seats at the ends of the tram are not in use.
Smartcards, m-tickets and tickets will be checked without contact.
No need to touch the door buttons, doors will open automatically
Our windows are open to allow a flow of fresh air into the tram - please do not close these if you are on board.
All our trams are being thoroughly cleaning throughout the day.
