Gyle Centre  -  Route 22

The Terminus

The Gyle Centre is a shopping centre close to the Edinburgh-Glasgow road and the Edinburgh bypass, about 5 miles west of the centre of Edinburgh.  It was built on a 50 acre site and opened in 1993.

The Routes

Lothian Buses routes 2,12,18, 21 and 22 all terminate at Gyle Centre and 24 and 35 pass through the Gyle Centre.

Here a single-decker bus on route 22 is waiting at Gyle Centre terminus.

The service ran about every five minutes from Gyle Centre, via:

-  the guided busway at Broomhouse ***

-  the Western Approach Road and

-  Princes Street

to Ocean Terminal shopping and entertainment centre at Leith Western Harbour.

*** This was Scotland's first guided busway.  However, buses stopped using it in 2008 when the busway closed and the land was handed over to become part of the new tram route to Edinburgh Airport, now being tested and due to open in May 2014
