SCOTTISH CITYLINK TO RUN SERVICES BETWEEN GLASGOW AND EDINBURGH 24 HOURS A DAY.

Scottish Citylink this week announced plans to extend its 900 service that connects Glasgow and Edinburgh.

From Monday 2 October, passengers will be able to use the coach operator, which is a joint venture between Stagecoach and international transport group ComfortDelGro, 24 hours a day, seven days a week- to travel between two of Scotland’s largest cities. With late night services also stopping at Edinburgh Airport.

Offering flexibilty, great value and a very frequent service, Service 900 is the ideal way to travel between Glasgow City Centre and Edinburgh City Centre.

The Citylink Edinburgh – Glasgow timetable will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week providing services at least every 15 minutes during the daytime, half hourly between 1930hrs and midnight and then at 0100hrs, 0130hrs, 0230hrs, 0330hrs, 0430hrs and 0515hrs. All services after midnight will also call at Edinburgh Airport.

Additional late night journeys from Glasgow to Edinburgh are 0100hrs, 0200hrs, 0300hrs, 0400hrs and 0500hrs. All services between 2300hrs and 0400hrs will serve Edinburgh Airport.

The new services also offer passengers enjoying a night out in one of these two great cities an affordable way of getting home after the pubs and clubs close. Currently the only option after 2330hrs is a taxi.

The changes to the 900 timetable, alongside the existing CitylinkAir service, provide a 24 hour service to Edinburgh Airport.

Maxim Park will also benefit from new links to and from Edinburgh along with additional late night services including the 0100hrs, 0230hrs and 0430hrs Edinburgh to Glasgow services and the 0200hrs and 0400hrs Glasgow to Edinburgh services.

The service offers over 50 journeys each way, every day, superfast free Wifi 4G and is great value at £7.60 for a single and £10.00 for a return. If bought up to two days in advance, customers can buy an advance day return for £7.60.

Peter Knight, Operations Director for Scottish Citylink said: “The 900 service has gone from strength to strength over recent years. With a growing number of business travellers, commuters and leisure users using the service between two of our largest cities, there has been great demand to increase our overnight connections throughout the week.

“By adding a late night stop at Edinburgh Airport it also means that Citylink is proving 24 hour a day transport to and from one of our most important transport hubs.

“By adding these services to our timetable, we can help our customers pick up a great value fare to travel from one incredible city to another.”


Craig Ritchie, director at Maxim Office Park, said: “The growth of Maxim Office Park and Eurocentral has resulted in a huge demand for increased public transport links to the area so it’s great news that Citylink’s 900 service has been extended to cater for this growth.

“The new service ensures that Maxim now has direct, around the clock connectivity to both Glasgow and Edinburgh city centres through public transport, providing the necessary links for the current and future workforce at Maxim and Eurocentral, as well as those who use the amenities such as the Dakota hotel and Berits & Brown bistro.

“Now it is open, the upgraded and extended M8/M73/M74 is further improving road-based travel and is therefore having a major positive impact on the businesses along the motorway corridor and beyond. We have just carried out a staff survey which shows a fantastic journey time saving of 28% since the new roads opened.  We’re also now seeing increased interest from a wide range of high profile occupiers due to Maxim being one of the most prominent and accessible locations within central Scotland.

“The arrival of further Citylink buses strengthens our position as Scotland’s premium out of town office park, offering our occupiers a variety of sustainable public transport options, excellent road access and on-site amenities.”
