Getting Around in EdinburghEdit This
Many buses leave from Princes Street and North Bridge, both within very easy walking distance from Waverley Station (the main station in the city). There are two main bus companies in Edinburgh: Lothian Buses, and First. Lothian Buses has the most extensive network within the city, while First operates many longer routes into the surrounding countryside.
An adult single ticket on Lothian Buses costs £1.10 (roughly €1.40 or $2.20), and can be bought from the driver, or from some ticket machines located at busy bus stops. This ticket is valid for any distance covered in one journey on the route which the ticket was bought for. Be aware that Lothian Buses don't give change, or accept bank-notes when buying from the driver. Tickets prices on First buses are set based on the length of journey that is taken, so simply tell the driver where you want to go. Not all First services give change.
