Lothian Buses has announced a number of timetable and route changes to take place from 29 July 2018. These changes are on many routes across the city, and will be in line with the re-opening of Leith Street. Colinton routes that will return to Leith Street will be 45, N16 and N44.

The only change to a Colinton bus route is the service 18 that will be replaced by 'Skylink' service 400. This will serve the current route of the 18, and will extend westwards out to the Arport via RBS Gogarburn and Ingliston Park and Ride. The revised timetable will include earlier morning journeys at the weekends, and later evening journeys all days of the week.

The full list of changes can be found in the 'news' section of the Lothian Buses website at https://www.lothianbuses.com/news/2018/06/service-change-29-july/. Revised timetables will become available soon.
