Lothian Buses has announced a number of timetable and route changes to take place from 25 February 2018. The only change on a Colinton bus service route is at the far end of the journey, where due to the long term closure of Newhaven Place in the Western Harbour area, bus service 10 will use Sandpiper Road instead. More locally, timetable changes on service 10 will include an additional later journey via Bonaly on Mondays to Saturdays. Service 18 will have timetable changes, including additional peak journeys and a later evening journey in each direction on Mondays to Saturdays; and an earlier journey in each direction on Sundays. Other minor timetable changes on local routes will affect services 20, 44 and X44.

Full details and advance timetables can be found on the Lothian Buses website at bus service changes from 25-Feb-2018

On the same date, there will be changes to some bus fares - details online at revised fares from 25-Feb-2018
