Additional tram services and a dedicated shuttle bus are being laid on to ensure concertgoers can get home or back to their hotel late at night following a series of big-name performances in Edinburgh over the next few weeks.

During August, Edinburgh Trams is running through the night on Fridays and Saturdays, but now the operator is planning extra services until around midnight on evenings when acts including The Killers, Paolo Nutini, and Connect festival take to the stage at the Royal Highland Centre.

A shuttle bus will also link the tram stop at Ingliston Park & Ride site with the Royal Highland Centre.

Sarah Singh, Edinburgh Trams Head of Service Delivery, commented:

We’re delighted to be able to work alongside the organisers once again to help anyone heading to the venue to make the most of this exciting summer programme of concerts with as little fuss as possible.

Frequent trams will serve all stops between Ingliston Park & Ride and Newhaven, and with a single ticket costing just £2 and a day return £3.80, taking the tram to get to and from the showground couldn’t be easier or better value.

Tram tickets can be purchased from platform ticket machines, and further details on Edinburgh Trams’ ticket products can be found here.

Under-22-year-olds with a Scottish National Entitlement Card or a Young Scot National Entitlement Card who are Edinburgh residents are able to travel on the tram free of charge.
