Canning Street terminus  -  Route 61

The Terminus

This view looks to the south down Canning Street towards the Western Approach Road.

The Head Office of Standard Life at the corner of  Lothian Road and the Western Approach Road is a short distance to the west (left) out of the picture.

The offices of Standard Life Bank, now sold to Barclays Bank, are straight ahead on the south side of the Western Approach Road.

The Route

This route used to be a private service for the staff of Standard Life who wished to travel between the company's offices in Edinbrugh.  It then became a public service, Route 61, operated by Mac Tours, a subsidiary of Lothian Buses.

Since about 2009, the route has been operated directly by Lothian Buses as route 61.  The route is still well patronised by Standard Life staff.
