Bus and Train

Public transport is a great way to reduce emissions and ease traffic congestion, as well as being accessibility to everyone. The Scottish Parliament is less than a mile from Edinburgh Waverley train station, two miles from Edinburgh bus station and 20 minutes walk from Princes Street. Two bus services— the 35 and the 6—stop next to the Scottish Parliament; both are operated by Lothian Buses.
