Travel with us to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Travelling from Fife to Edinburgh for the Fringe this year?

 

August is the busiest time of year for journeys from Fife to Edinburgh, so to help you get there more easily, why not leave the car behind and catch the bus?

Connections are available all over Fife to Halbeath/Ferrytoll P&R -  simply plan your journey below visit  stagecoachbus.com/plan-a-journey  or use the Stagecoach Bus smartphone App.

N55 0030 from Dunfermline to Edinburgh N55 0130 from Edinburgh to Dunfermline
N55 0230 from Dunfermline to Edinburgh N55 0330 from Edinburgh to Dunfermline

Single fares are valid on service N55 - pay with contactless! No other return, flexirider, dayrider, megarider, student ticket or concession passes are valid on this route.

Due to low demand in previous years, we are unable to run the night service between Kirkcaldy and Edinburgh during the festival this year. We apologise for any inconvenience.

 

As August is an extremely busy time of year to travel to/from Edinburgh, your journey may take slightly longer than usual so please allow extra time for your journey (we don’t want you arriving late to your show!) and remember to  plan ahead   and  track your bus arrival    or  download the Stagecoach Bus App.
