Edinburgh Trams

The easiest way to get to the city!

Relax and glide from Edinburgh Airport to the City centre on board Edinburgh Trams with an Adult Open Return Ticket. The journey takes around 30 minutes and tickets are open ended meaning, the return journey can be made on any day.

Edinburgh trams has 23 stops that connect Edinburgh Airport to Newhaven via the city centre. Trams run from every 7 minutes throughout the daytime, 7 days a week. In the early morning and during the evening trams run from every 10 minutes. The last tram departs from Edinburgh Airport at 10.48pm and the last tram to the airport runs from Newhaven at 11:50pm.

When you purchase your Edinburgh City Pass you will also receive instructions on how to activate your open return e-tram ticket in advance. Simply select your first day of travel (your tram ticket will not activate your City Pass so no need to travel on the same day you start visiting attractions). As this is an Open Return ticket you can use it at any later date for your return journey.


Trams run every 7 minutes during the day and every ten minutes before 05.30am and after 7pm.
