The Car Hire Edinburgh Airport team are hoping for a resolution to the late night tram issue during this summers festival season.
The bosses of the trams in Edinburgh have been criticised for not running late-night tram services during the Edinburgh Festival. The last service on the network will be 11:08pm, many hours before last orders.
A number of bars and nightclubs stay open until 5am during the festival and the move will hit those revellers and tourists out in to the night. This has created a fear that the city will miss out on a bumper pay day from visitors.
But a spokeswoman for Transport for Edinburgh said “We have no plans to introduce later journeys on the trams. Our night bus network will be fully operational throughout the festival and will offer safe, reliable transport to residents and visitors across the city.”
