All electric travel to Edinburgh Airport

Edinburgh Trams is joining forces with Ember to provide electric travel between Dundee and Scotland’s largest airport.

Electric buses operated by Ember already serve the Ingliston park-and-ride stop, just a short journey by tram to Edinburgh Airport, and a new ticket offer makes planning a seamless journey even easier.

Ember tickets are now accepted on the tram for travel to and from the airport, at no additional cost. The tram ‘top up’ is included in the cost of the standard Ember ticket, providing value as well as zero emissions journeys to and from Edinburgh Airport.

Fares from Dundee to the airport costs £7.50.

Lea Harrison, Edinburgh Trams managing director, says: “The electric buses and our trams really do complement each other. Neither produce harmful emissions, and they provide a great way to get around while reducing road congestion.

“We are delighted to be working with Ember on this new initiative that will make it easier than ever for people to step off the UK’s first all-electric, inter-city buses and onto Edinburgh’s popular tram network, which has services from every seven minutes to the airport.”

Ember co-founder Keith Bradbury, adds: “This type of integrated ticketing really gives passengers the best of both worlds. A relaxed journey to the airport, a seamless interchange and the simplicity of only needing one ticket to get all the way to the terminal, plus the knowledge that it’s all being done with zero emissions”.
