  Lothian bus followed bya First bus on Princes St
by clivedinburgh

There are two bus companies that operate within Edinburgh which can be quite confusing (even for us scots).

Lothian buses are generally maroon coloured and have a comprehensive website showing routes. Journeys cost £1 for adults for any distance on a route or you could buy a Day Ticket from the driver for £2.30 for unlimited travel. A Nightbus service operates on a limited amount of routes at a cost of £2 per journey (day tickets are not valid on these).

First Buses operate buses from the city out to the suburbs and beyond and operate a similar Day Ticket scheme (from £2.30) that is zoned.
