Out with the family?

Zoom activity pack for kids

We now stock an activity pack to keep your kids entertained on all of our buses and coaches on the Express City Connect network!  We have created handy packs, designed to keep kids occupied during your journey, with fun and educational puzzles, games and tasks.  

The packs are designed to be suitable for 3 - 11 year old kids and are full of travel related activities.  Our driver will hand you one when you board, but if they don't please just ask!

We also offer an add-on fare of just £1 for children travelling with an adult buying an off-peak day return ticket between Ferrytoll/Halbeath P&R and Edinburgh.
