Travelling around Edinburgh

Edinburgh is compact and easy to find your way around. There are taxi ranks dotted around the city centre and black cabs with an ‘available’ light on can be flagged down in the street

Edinburgh has developed its city transport network and a new tram system runs from York Place to Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh’s extensive bus routes cover the entire city and its outskirts. Single fares are £1.60, day tickets give unlimited journeys for £4.00 and most festival venues are on if not nearby the main bus routes. For more information on bus services please visit

Black cabs and other taxi services are available throughout the city. The traditional taxi can be picked up at one of the city’s many taxi ranks as well as flagged down on the street. Taxi fares are calculated on distance and waiting times and a taxi ride across the city centre can cost between £6 and £10  

Travelling in your own car, you’ll need to be aware of parking restrictions throughout the city. There are a number of short term pay and display parking areas but many more are zoned so check before leaving your car and make sure to top up the parking meters when your time expires
