Citylink introduce 24 hour Edinburgh to Glasgow service

The 900 service is a familiar sight on Edinburgh city centre streets and now it will run 24 hours a day seven days a week to connect the capital to Glasgow. Tickets will be £7.60 single and £10.00 return. If you buy in advance the return is £7.60.

This means that the service will offer 50 journeys each way every 15 minutes, and additional stops will include Edinburgh Airport between 11.00pm and 4.00am and Maxim Office Park between 1.00am and 4.00 am.

This is great news for those travelling to Glasgow for concerts when the only way  back would be a taxi if you missed the last bus or train.

Peter Knight, Operations Director for Scottish Citylink said: “The 900 service has gone from strength to strength over recent years. With a growing number of business travellers, commuters and leisure users using the service between two of our largest cities, there has been great demand to increase our overnight connections throughout the week.

 

“By adding a late night stop at Edinburgh Airport it also means that Citylink is proving 24 hour a day transport to and from one of our most important transport hubs.

“By adding these services to our timetable, we can help our customers pick up a great value fare to travel from one incredible city to another.”

Craig Ritchie, director at Maxim Office Park, said: “The growth of Maxim Office Park and Eurocentral has resulted in a huge demand for increased public transport links to the area so it’s great news that Citylink’s 900 service has been extended to cater for this growth.

“The new service ensures that Maxim now has direct, around the clock connectivity to both Glasgow and Edinburgh city centres through public transport, providing the necessary links for the current and future workforce at Maxim and Eurocentral, as well as those who use the amenities such as the Dakota hotel and Berits & Brown bistro.

“Now it is open, the upgraded and extended M8/M73/M74 is further improving road-based travel and is therefore having a major positive impact on the businesses along the motorway corridor and beyond. We have just carried out a staff survey which shows a fantastic journey time saving of 28% since the new roads opened.  We’re also now seeing increased interest from a wide range of high profile occupiers due to Maxim being one of the most prominent and accessible locations within central Scotland.

“The arrival of further Citylink buses strengthens our position as Scotland’s premium out of town office park, offering our occupiers a variety of sustainable public transport options, excellent road access and on-site amenities.”

We reproduce the timetable below. You will see that those services during the night go from South St David Street not the Bus Station. To access Scottish Citylink’s timetable in full or pre-book a journey please contact Citylink’s call centre on 0871 266 33 33 or visit www.citylink.co.uk
