Our Apartment is serviced by 3 major bus routes (No. 22 16 and 35) and no. 36.  or visit our lothian bus website for more info, at http://www.lothianbuses.com/

The number 22 is a fast and frequent bus from Ocean terminal going out as far as the Gyle Centre through the middle of town.  It leaves from Ocean terminal every 5 minutes during the day and will whisk you into the centre in around 10 minutes.  

The 16 again goes through the centre of town and out towards the Ski Centre.
  
The 35 goes between Ocean Terminal and the airport every 30 minutes.  From the airport it is however, faster taking the Airport link bus to Waverly Train station and then getting the 22 from princes street or, alternatively the same bus operator offers a minibus service to your door for around £10 per person. Between the 4 routes outside our door, 95% of the tourist attractions are covered and easily and cheaply gotten to.

Tourist bus:

If you plan to buy a hop on and hop off ticket for sight seeing, then here is a tips to help you save money!
You only pay £3.50 for adult day ticket / child £2.00 (age 5-15)  from our Lothian bus which is you can use it all day long on every Lothian bus.
Their route covers all the major tourist attractions in the city. From our apartment, you can choose to go directly to palace, royal mile, prices street
or castle etc. (The map route provides in the apartment.) The hop on and hop off ticket usually cost around £12. So, you can save £8.50!!!

By Car:

Like all major cities Edinburgh has its problems with too many cars and the local authority seem to make it so difficult for you to get around and park. There is extensive parking in the city either inside car parks or on the street with use of meters.  If you use the meters then read the instructions carefully and do not let the ticket expire, as you will soon have a £30 ticket.

By Tram:

We were promised our state of the art new tram service for 2012, and our apartment is very close to a tram stop, but, it is behind schedule and is not likely to be up and running now until 2014.  We do however have to contend with all the roadworks until then.  

By Bicycle:

Edinburgh is bike friendly and many cycle lanes exist covering a major part of the city.
