direct bus from Edinburgh airport to Glasgow?


I'm moving to Glasgow next September but my flight arrives to Edinburgh airport, does anyone know if there is a direct bus or train from the airport to the city centre??

I think you might have to take the Airlink bus from EDI airport to Haymarket station, then the Citylink coach from there to Glasgow Buchanan bus station.



There are also trains from Edinburgh Haymarket to Glasgow Queen Street and Glasgow Central - the latter service is a stopping train, calling at a number of stations between the two cities.

I've taken the bus from Edinburgh Haymarket to the airport, and it was a fairly painless journey. Waverley station is busier than Haymarket, so it might pay to start from Haymarket so as not to have to deal with the crowds.

You might want to ask this question on the Edinburgh forum, as there are a handful of locals there who will have up to the minute info on how best to get from EDI airport to Glasgow.

Buena suerte!

Hmm...., did you really need to post this same question on three different forums (Glasgow, Edinburgh & Air Travel)?

I don't think it's a problem to cross-post to the most relevant forums, is it? They're obviously trying to maximise their chance of getting the best advice.

For the OP, if you are dealing with a lot of luggage there is also a very good shuttle van service from Edinburgh airport to the city centre. It costs a little more but you don't have to manhandle your bags onto a bus.
