Have you tried….. the X5

Introduced in April this year, our X5 service is an hourly express route taking you between North Berwick and Edinburgh in under 1 hour and a half .

Last month, due to demand from you our customers, we started operating this service on a Saturday. It’s ideal for anyone taking a daytrip to Edinburgh or North Berwick for shopping, lunch or visiting friends.

Sit back, enjoy the scenery, use the free on-board wifi and let us do the driving.

The best value way to travel is with our a countyPLUS Day Ticket. For just £7.50, this gives you all day travel on all our buses plus Lothian day services so if you’re heading to Edinburgh you can get to the City Centre and beyond! Tickets can be bought on bus or in advance from the TfE App.

The first X5 bus to Edinburgh leaves at 0627 and the last bus returns from Semple Street at 1815. The service uses all stops from North Berwick to the Jewel before running non-stop to Duddingston Park South, Willowbrae, Meadowbank House, Abbeyhill then all marked stops to Semple Street.
