Edinburgh Trams will be giving festival goers the freedom to stay out till the sun comes up by running an all night service throughout August.
The line-up will feature trams running on both Friday and Saturdays going all night long with services from every 20 mins between midnight and 5.30am to keep up with festival revellers. Restrictions at Ingliston Park and Ride have been lifted on Friday and Saturdays so no one need miss a single beat of the drum, side-splitting joke or dramatic dance move.
Sarah Singh, Operations Manager, said:
“For three weeks in August we see a huge surge in customers wanting to come into the city, and as festival fever begins to grip the city Edinburgh Trams is ready to help you enjoy the extravaganza without having to worry about getting home. What’s more, the cost of travelling by tram at night will be the same as during the day, with a return ticket in the City Zone costing just £3.20 for adults.”
Brigadier David Allfrey, Chief Executive and Producer at The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, said:
“Thank you! It is brilliant that Transport for Edinburgh - our trams and our buses - are making special and extra provision over the summer. Whether our guests are coming to The Tattoo or enjoying a hundred and one other things on a evening in our extraordinary Festivals City, it is great to know that getting home at the close will be easy.”
Trams will run all night on Friday and Saturday from 3 August till 25 August 2019.
