Motion S5M-02773: Edinburgh Airport Transport Links

26 Nov 2016

That the Parliament notes the recent report produced by the Airport Operators Association regarding the method of transport used between Edinburgh Airport and the city; understands that 8% of people travelling from the airport used the tram while 25% took the bus, which represents a fall in tram usage on previous months; believes that the reasons that people gave for this included the proximity of the bus stop to the terminal, cheaper bus fares and the comparable journey times; considers that this is evidence that most people in Edinburgh prefer the bus to the tram, and believes that this might also be the case if a tram-train link is introduced between Glasgow and its airport.
