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.

Your bus ticket straight to your mobile.

Buy tickets with the Transport for Edinburgh app and turn your phone into your ticket. Purchase tickets at a time convenient for you, then just activate one and show your phone to the driver when you get on the bus (for Lothian Buses) or to the Ticket Services Assistant when boarding a tram. Tickets are easy to buy and can be used straight away or saved for future trips. To purchase m-tickets you will require a valid debit or credit card, or Barclays Pingit. Minimum spend is £10. Find out more about m-tickets.

One passenger per device

Please note that except for Family DAYtickets, m-tickets can only be used by one passenger per device - passengers cannot travel together using tickets purchased on the same device.
