Background

'Lothian Buses'

formerly Lothian Region Transport

I thought it might be interesting to photograph all the Lothian Buses termini in 2007, then see how these places change over the years.

The bus routes now extend further from the city centre now than they did a few years ago, to places such as Tranent, Gorebridge, Penicuik and Balerno, often reaching the areas where the edges of the housing developments where the fields begin.

Fares now (April 2007) are:

-  1 (60p child) for most single journeys on Lothian Buses.

-  2.50 for a ticket allows travel throughout the day on most Lothian Buses.

Map

I started to photograph the termini in March 2007, and have now begun to add some of the photos to the web site.  I'll also add a map showing the routes and the locations of the termini if I can get permission to do so.

Meanwhile, the list below shows the locations of the terminuses (at April1, 2007)

Bus Liveries

The buses in the photos are in one of two liveries.  The older buses are painted in the traditional 'madder and white' colours that have been used for many decades.

The newer, low-floor buses that now form more than half of the fleet, are in a new 'harlequin' livery, first introduced in the 1990s.

More Photos Later

I hope to photograph all the Lothian Buses termini over the next few months.  I already have several more photos to add to this page, when I can find the time to add them.

The photos on this page have been taken from March 2007 onwards.  The locations of the termini listed below change from time to time.  For details of Lothian Buses' services today, please see the Lothian Buses web site.
