Edinburgh Trams Go Live

If you happen to be arriving at Edinburgh airport tomorrow, you could be among the first to use the tram service into the city. Edinburgh Trams go live at 5:00 am on 31 May.

Leaving aside all the concerns we locals have expressed throughout the construction process, the trams are here now.

I love the tram system here in Amsterdam and I know you locals have gone through quite a lot of pain getting there but hopefully you will like your new transport option.

Do we know yet if we can use our Scottish over 60's bus pass on the tram?

Yes, but only if you are an Edinburgh resident.
