Smartphone apps

The official Transport for Edinburgh app means there’s no need to search for the exact fare again.

Instead, you can buy and load your phone with m-tickets. Your m-tickets can then be activated and used as you need them. The app also uses real-time information and can send push notifications so you’ll always know when your bus is due.

Never miss the bus again.

With real-time information from Bustracker, the app gives you live departure boards for every bus & tram stop in the city. Fast, responsive maps show you all stops near you, as well as first and last departures, personalised timetables and stop alarms – we’ll send you a message when you’re approaching an unfamiliar stop.

Easily get from A to B.

If you’re looking for a fast, easy way to get around Edinburgh and the Lothians, the app can give you up to five quick, convenient ways to get there by bus or tram. You can then follow the directions on a large, clear map. Even better: we’ll send an alert to your phone when you’re close to your final stop.

Your app, the way you want it.

The app changes depending on where you are and how you use it. You can add your favourite stops and services, and save places for use later on. Plus, the great ‘Take Me Home’ button gives you live directions for getting home, day or night. We’ll even send you messages if your favourite services are disrupted.

Your bus ticket straight to your mobile.

Buy tickets with the Transport for Edinburgh app and turn your phone into your ticket.
