Edinburgh’s award-winning tram system is set to offer quick travel for visitors to one of the city’s most popular annual events.

When the Royal Highland Show returns later this week, anyone planning a trip to the world-famous exhibition of rural life in Scotland can avoid the traffic congestion in the area by taking the tram.

The Ingliston Park & Ride stop is just a 10 to 15-minute walk from the showground’s entrance and, with trams from every seven minutes throughout the day, getting to the heart of the event couldn’t be easier or more convenient. Further details can be found here.

Alternatively, a free shuttle bus service will also be in operation during the four-day event, linking the tram stop at Ingliston Park & Ride with the east gate of the Royal Highland Centre.

Lea Harrison, Edinburgh Trams Managing Director, commented:

We’re thrilled to be able to work with organisers once again to ensure everyone can travel to and from the showground with as little fuss as possible so that they can focus on enjoying the exceptional food and drinks at the event.

With trams now serving all stops between Newhaven and the airport, and with a wide range of great travel offers, we’re ready to help people to make the most of the occasion.

As an added bonus, customers can pay for tram travel at the same time as buying their tickets for the show, and further details can be found here. They can also take advantage of the operator’s ‘Day Tripper’ ticket, which costs only £8, and more details can be found here.
