Scottish Citylink has added extra stops and more journeys to its 902 between Glasgow, Livingston and Edinburgh Airport, and in what seems like an unusual move has taken over the operation of local route 23, which has links to both the 902 and its Glasgow-Edinburgh 900.

The new timetable began on 4 December and will see the 902 serve Harthill Village, Uphall and Broxburn for the first time, opening up new journey opportunities. In addition, new late evening and weekday journeys have been added to several locations on the route. From the same date, Citylink took over responsibility for route 23, which runs from Shotts to Whitburn, and which will be operated by subcontractor Hairy Haggis Tours.

Scottish Citylink Managing Director Simone Smith said: “This is great news for customers travelling between Glasgow, Livingston and Edinburgh Airport who now have more services and extra stops to choose from. We hope these changes will be of particular benefit to passengers in Harthill Village, Uphall and Broxburn who now have access to key transport hubs and also shopping destinations in the lead-up to the festive season in particular.

“And we’re pleased to be taking over the running of service 23 which provides important local links and connects not only to the 902 route but also to our service 900 between Edinburgh and Glasgow and our AIR service between Glasgow and Edinburgh Airport.”
