 Direct bus from Dunfermline to ocean terminal?
Topic Originator: DBP  
Date:   Sun 4 Jul 13:26

Does anyone know if there’s a direct bus (ideally from close to East End Park) to either ocean terminal or bottom of leith walk or bottom of ferry road?

It would be for commuting so weekdays to get there for about 8:30’ish and back again, leaving about 4:30’ish?

I’m sure there used to be a direct bus but can’t see anything listed???

No, it’s for my youngest who’s attending art classes just beside ocean terminal - one bus journey would be a lot easier

They stopped the direct bus around the time I stopped working down that way - just over 6 years ago - easiest way now is probably city centre and then a 22 to Ocean terminal I think - at least until the tram goes that way

I`ve had a look on the Lothian buses app DBP. There`s an airport bus that goes along Queensferry Road so your daughter could jsut jump off the Edinburgh bus and wait at the same stop. The only problem is it`s an hourly service.

If you google Skylink 200 you`ll get a full timetable. I also recommend downloading the app and do a search for Edinburgh Airport to Ocean Terminal. The search results show you a map of the route with the stops the bus makes.

Other things to consider:

1. Car sharing with someone making a similar journey. There are apps/website whereby you could search for willing drivers.

2. Get him a fold up bike so he can cycle to/from the city centre and use the bus for the remainder of the journey?

cool thanks QPR

...and i`ll float those suggestions neil- think the bike is out as will need to carry artwork back and forth - but hopefully when they start, they`ll be someone nearby who also attends and will car share (fingers-crossed!)
