We've had a fantastic response to our new 108 service from Haddington to Musselburgh and Fort Kinnaird, Passenger use in the first week has exceeded our initial expectations, and whilst further growth is needed we are confident we can make the route a success.

We thought we'd share some of the comments we've had from passengers this week :-

"FANTASTIC! After years of using First buses 108 service from Musselburgh to Haddington and back, can I please take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastic journey today on a smart, clean, on time, WiFi enabled bus"

"I am finding your new services great! So nice to be greeted by a smile and nice friendly drivers. Thank you what a breath of fresh air!"

"We got on the new 108 service this morning and I would like to say thank you for a great value reliable service the drivers were very helpful and cheery."

"I travelled on the 108 service on Wednesday morning at 10.00 from Haddington to Tranent and was so impressed with the friendly, pleasant greeting as I boarded the bus. I was further impressed on my return at 2.30 when again I boarded to a friendly greeting from another very accommodating driver. It made such a change
from the often surly drivers on some other bus services"

The result of great teamwork!!

We are immensely proud to have found out yesterday that our '111-122 Connecting East Lothian to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary' is one of only 4 routes shortlisted for 'Best Bus Service' at the forthcoming Scottish Transport awards.

The route was launched only 11 months ago after we won the contract issued by East Lothian Council. In that time passenger numbers have doubled, more daily journeys have been added with the route being expanded to 3 vehicles running daily.

What a difference a year makes!

On 1st April last year we announced our new #Cabrio bus for use on the new forthcoming 111-122 Connecting East Lothian to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary service.

In reality we've bought 3 identical Eco-friendly Enviro 200 buses for the route. In the 11 months since the 111-122 was launched passenger numbers have doubled, the timetable was expanded with the addition of a third bus and further expansion is being considered for later this year.

We take our passengers safety very seriously, that's why we have a portable brake tester.

Every vehicle is brake tested at least once a month, along with a complete vehicle comprehensive safety inspection.
