City Mobility Plan 2021-2030

After more than three years of planning and consultation the City Mobility Plan was formally approved at the Council’s Transport and Environment Committee on 19 February.

CEC’s Spatial Policy Team are now working to deliver the policy measures in the Plan, with many actions being delivered through more detailed actions plans such as the Active Travel Action Plan and the Road Safety Plan. The development of these action plans will bring further opportunities for dialogue as they progress.

A copy of the final City Mobility Plan is here. It is a lengthy document but an Executive Summary of some 10 pages is included.

Lothian Buses update from 15 March 2021

 In anticipation of an expected increase in customers from Monday 15 March with the return of primary pupils and partial return of secondary pupils to schools across Edinburgh and the Lothians, a number of additional journeys will be added to the Lothian network.

Extra journeys will be added to weekday mornings and afternoons (during school term only) on certain services to provide additional capacity for those making essential journeys. The Service 45 will also return on school days between Heriot-Watt University and Lauriston Place via Currie, Colinton and Bruntsfield (with two morning journeys and two afternoon journeys).
