Stagecoach East Scotland has introduced six new buses to operate on its Fife to Edinburgh JET747 airport service.

The route stops at Halbeath Park & Ride, Inverkeithing railway station and Ferrytoll Park & Ride, en route to Scotland’s busiest airport.

Stagecoach increased the journey frequency on the route in April 2017, allowing customers to travel to Edinburgh Airport up to every 20 minutes from Fife, to cater for increased demand for the route. The company has invested £1m into the six new Alexander Dennis Ltd (ADL) Enviro200 MMC buses, which now provide more seats and more luggage space following customer feedback.

Paul Thomas, Managing Director of Stagecoach East Scotland, said: “I’m delighted to welcome these six new buses into our East Scotland fleet, especially on our ever busy Edinburgh Airport route. These buses allow customers easy, hassle free transport to Edinburgh Airport, leaving the car behind they set off on their holidays, with passengers dropped off right outside the terminal building.”

The new buses have a range of features including leather seats, USB power sockets, air-conditioning, free WiFi access, a large luggage hold and extra spacing between seating rows to allow smaller bags and cases to be placed in front of the passenger’s seat.
