One Ticket

One-Ticket is scheme run by South of Scotland councils and bus/train companies which allows you to buy a single ticket for use on any bus or train. You can buy a day ticket for buses only, or you can buy a weekly, monthly or annual season ticket which would allow you to take any bus or train at any time within the specified area. This will not necessarily offer great savings, but will may save on hassle e.g a weekly ticket including trains to Edinburgh and unlimited bus travel around the city would cost £53.

All aboard for battle over bus services!

East Lothian News: Published on Friday 24 December 2010 10:44

A campaign for better bus services in East Lothian has been launched.

Rural East Lothian Bus Users (RELBUs) group has been set up to lobby for “positive changes” to services, which have come under attack from unhappy passengers.

Activists say they want to work with bus companies “to provide the services that local people need and will use, at an affordable price”.

Jill Thomson from Dunbar urged the public to speak out and said it was hoped to enlist representatives from each town in the county.

“With many rail commuters being forced to use the bus service during the snow, it is important everyone is aware that the bus service is only going to get worse.

“We want as much feedback as we can get to lobby for a better bus service in East Lothian.”
