Over thirty additional Lothian vehicles will be added to the company’s services operating in and around Murrayfield this Friday to help make sure Robbie Williams fans are able to get to and from the gig without a hitch.
With around 49,000 fans expected to attend the show on Friday 9th June, Lothian is adding extra services and around ten extra supervisors to help keep people moving safely and quickly.
The company will be operating a dedicated X12 route for concertgoers between Ingliston Park & Ride and BT Murrayfield Stadium on top of the normal service provision.
Alan Black, Head of Service Delivery at Lothian, said: “Events of this size are important to the city and we’re delighted to be supporting it.
“Our Service X12, which stops right outside the stadium is definitely the best option for travelling to the event.
“Throughout the summer, Lothian will be working to make sure additional services are laid on to help reduce congestion and wait times at big events. Particularly in the current climate, we recognise the importance of safe, reliable transport services and are committed to providing the best possible service to the people of Edinburgh and its visitors.”
Following the show, Lothian will have a queue of fourteen extra Service 22 vehicles waiting at the West Approach Road to take customers to the city centre, along with additional resources on Glasgow Road including the dedicated X12 vehicles to Ingliston Park and Ride.
Customers are advised to keep an eye on Lothian’s social media accounts for up to date information: @on_lothianbuses on twitter and facebook.com/LothianBuses on Facebook.
