We booked our tickets for the tram online and easily found the tram outside the airport. The journey was a breeze and super easy. We were impressed by the tram in its entirety. Easy to use and seamless. Highly recommended!

First time on tram, it was an enjoyable trip from city centre to Gyle. 30 minutes for £1.60 very good value and far quicker than going by road.
