About Edinburgh Bus Station

As Scotland's capital, Edinburgh is a hub for public transportation from around the country and across the UK. Along with its airport and rail station, Edinburgh bus station provides a terminus for both local and long-distance bus services. And because this bus station is centrally located close to Edinburgh's heart, it's a very convenient place for visitors to the city to arrive at.

The current version of Edinburgh bus station was opened in 2003. It replaced the older St. Andrew Square bus station that dated back to 1957 and was built as part of Edinburgh city center's redevelopment. As a result, the bus station is still very new and up-to-date. Located just 650 feet from Edinburgh Waverley station, the city's main train station, the bus station is a vital part of the city's transit network.

Megabus, National Express, Scottish Citylink, and Stagecoach East Scotland all use the station as part of their long-distance bus routes. This makes the bus station easy to reach for cities throughout Scotland and the UK as a whole.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
