Community Bus Routes

“It’s no exaggeration to say that the Community Bus is a lifeline for us...”

Janet Timmins - Community Bus User

In addition to providing a Minibus Hire Service, LCTS also runs a number of scheduled Community Bus Routes in Midlothian.

Unlike our minibus services, the Community Buses are available directly to members of the public and holders of a National Concessionary Card or a Young Scot Card can use them on these services.
