Community Transport

Community transport in Edinburgh and Midlothian

What does it do?

Lothian Community Transport Services (LCTS) is an independent organisation that provides, promotes and supports high-quality passenger transport services including:

  • Minibus hire to almost 200 member organisations
  • High quality training for transport operators
  • Advice & Information.
Minibus Hire

LCTS minibus hire services operates from bases in Edinburgh and Dalkeith and is available to not-for-profit organisations in Edinburgh, Midlothian and West Lothian.

All our minibuses are available for hire on either a “Self-Drive” and “With -Driver” and our charges are mostly mileage-based.

Community Bus

In addition to providing a Minibus Hire Service, LCTS also runs a number of scheduled Community Bus Routes in Midlothian.
Unlike our minibus services, the Community Buses are available directly to members of the public and holders of a National Concessionary Card or a Young Scot Card can use them on these services.
