Public Transport


  • Newbridge is served by Lothian Buses 63 between Queensferry and Hermiston Park and Ride as well as some McGill’s/First Bus services to West Lothian and Fife on the A89,
  • Ratho Station is served by McGill’s/First Bus to Linlithgow/Falkirk and Livingston as well as Lothian Buses 63 and McGill’s 20 to and from Ratho Village.
  • Gogar has a few Horsburgh services 40 between St John’s Hospital and the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh.
  • Ratho Village:  Following the introduction of the trams on 1 June 2014 the 12/X12 was withdrawn and replaced by service 20, presently run by First Bus.  This takes bus users via Ratho Station, Gyle Centre and Edinburgh Park,  via Ingliston Park and Ride.  This is seen as a retrograde step, ignoring the needs of residents who work in  Corstorphine or in the City Centre.  A review was  promised within 6 months though no improvement has ever been offered.  In recent years the frequency was reduced from half-hourly to hourly, and even this service is erratic.  A new contract for the supported bus service is due to be let in 2023.


  • The current operator for Ratho Village is McGill’s, running between Ratho, Gyle Centre and Hermiston Gait, as an hourly service. The service goes on to Asda at Chesser during peak times.
  • Horsburgh service 40 connects Ratho to East CalderLivingston and St. Johns Hospital in one direction and Edinburgh Royal Infirmary in the other direction
  • Nearest railway station is at Edinburgh Gateway (with the tram); there are others at  Curriehill (Edinburgh ~ Glasgow Central line), Edinburgh Park (bus and tram interchange) and South Gyle.
