Edinburgh’s Festivals get underway this Friday (6 August), and we’re here to help.

Whether you are visiting the capital by air, rail or road, we have you covered. We have stops at Edinburgh Airport, Ingliston Park & Ride, Edinburgh Gateway, Haymarket and St Andrew Square (for Waverley). What’s more, our Edinburgh Park Station stop not only connects with ScotRail services, it’s also only a few minutes’ walk from the new Edinburgh International Festival site.

Edinburgh Trams operate services from every seven minutes to 16 locations to the heart of the city. When travelling by tram, all tickets, smartcards and mtickets must be purchased, validated or activated before boarding. Find out more about our extensive range of tram and bus ticket here. Or, check out some of our exclusive tram only products at, including our new multi-day tickets.

Sarah Singh, Head of Operations at Edinburgh Trams said:

“Even with a scaled back Festivals, we’re ready to support the city by providing safe, reliable and customer focussed services to help people get around and enjoy what’s on offer.

If you have any questions about your stay in Edinburgh, contact our friendly Customer Relations Team or speak to one of our Ticket Inspectors on board.
