Getting from Edinburgh Airport to Edinburgh City Centre

There are several options available to get from Edinburgh Airport to your hotel in Edinburgh.

Bus from Edinburgh Airport to Edinburgh City Centre

Edinburgh’s main bus company, Lothian Buses provide public transportation to and from the airport with the Airlink 100 express bus service. This express bus service runs every 10 minutes from the airport to Waverley Bridge (near Princes Street and the main rail and bus stations). Journey time to the city centre is around 25 minutes (depending on traffic).

An adult single ticket costs £3.50 with a return journey costing £6. Childrens tickets are available for £2 single or £3 return. Tickets can be purchased at the airport information desk, at the bus stop, from the driver or on the Airlink Website.

Taxi and Private Car Transfer from Edinburgh Airport to Edinburgh City Centre

Separate taxi ranks (which are well signposted) for private airport taxis and for city “black cabs” are situated outside the east end of the terminal building. A journey to the city centre takes about 25 minutes and generally costs around £15. Most taxis are wheelchair accessible.
