The two buses in the background are tour buses.  The starting point for the open top bus tours of Edinburgh is Waverley Bridge,  a short distance in front of the stance that the Airlink buses leave from.

Bus Liveries

The buses in this photo are painted in the blue livery that was used for buses on the Airlink service (Route 100) until mid-2010.  They have now been repainted in the standard livery for Lothian Buses, and are being used mainly on Service 34 between Ocean Terminal and Edinburgh Airport.

In mid-2010, a new batch of buses was delivered for the Airlink service (Route 100).  These newer buses are painted in a new-style, lighter blue livery.
