The King's Buildings Shuttle Bus will be suspended in Semester 1, 2020/21

In light of recent Scottish Government Covid-19 guidance and following consultation with Lothian Buses and other external travel providers on the impact physical distancing measures will have on reducing the capacity of on-campus activities and associated transport services, it will no longer be feasible or practical to run the King’s Buildings Shuttle Bus in Semester 1, 2020/21.

New Travel Options

The University will instead be reinvesting the funds from the Shuttle Bus to provide an extended range of alternative and financially affordable travel for students and staff which align with the Scottish Government Covid-19 guidance around walking, cycling and driving wherever possible and minimising use of public transport.
