Assuming you are coming from the airport

Airlink Bus - £3.50 one way, £6 return

35 Bus - £1.30 one way, £3.20 for a day ticket for all Lothian Buses

All of this is on the Edinburgh Airport website

Main stops are Haymarket, Shandwick Place and Waverley Bridge. All other stops will be listed on the Lothian Buses website under "Arlink". The stops back to the aiport are more or less opposite in most cases.

There's also a stop at The Mound / Hanover Street which is roughly half way along Princes Street.

Bus or taxi (£20) are your only options. There's no train link and despite expectations, there is no tram link, nor will there likely be one.
