Extra journeys to Edinburgh Festival in August 2018

August is the busiest time of year for journeys from Fife to Edinburgh, so to help you get there more easily, we’re introducing a  special Festival service,  F59, running during August.  The special route will operate between Halbeath Park & Ride, Ferrytoll Park & Ride and Edinburgh up to every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday and up to every 30 minutes on Sunday, providing extra capacity at this busy time of year.  View the timetable for this service here.

Combined with existing Express City Connect services, this will provide journeys between Halbeath P&R and Edinburgh up to every 10 minutes, and between Ferrytoll P&R and Edinburgh up to every 5 minutes!


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.

In addition to service F59 and our regular Edinburgh services, we’ll also be running extra late night journeys to and from Edinburgh in August. The following journeys will run every night from Friday 4 - Monday 28 August:

This year, we're also adding a new late night journey between Edinburgh and Perth, ideal for getting home after catching an evening show! 
Service F56 will depart Perth at 2055, calling at the same stops as service X56. A return journey will also be available from Edinburgh to Perth, departing at 2245.

 

We’ll also be running a night service between Kirkcaldy and Edinburgh in both directions, during August only, stopping at Ferrytoll P&R, Inverkeithing and Dalgety Bay. The following N58 journeys will run on Friday and Saturday nights (Saturday and Sunday early mornings) from Friday 3 - Sunday 26 August:


  • N58          0015 journey from Kirkcaldy to Edinburgh 
  • N58          0115 journey from Edinburgh to Kirkcaldy
  • N58          0215 journey from Kirkcaldy to Edinburgh 
  • N58          0315 journey from Edinburgh to Kirkcaldy

Don’t forget - our normal N55 journeys between Edinburgh and Dunfermline, stopping at Ferrytoll P&R, Inverkeithing and Rosyth will also be running on Friday and Saturday nights:

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

All usual Express City Connect services will run as normal in August too, but delays may be expected due to the high volume of traffic travelling to/from Edinburgh. 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.
