Alan Black, Head of Service Delivery at Lothian, said: “Events of this size are important to the city and we’re delighted to be supporting it.

“Our Service X12, which stops right outside the stadium is definitely the best option for travelling to the event.

“Throughout the summer, Lothian will be working to make sure additional services are laid on to help reduce congestion and wait times at big events.

“Particularly in the current climate, we recognise the importance of safe, reliable transport services and are committed to providing the best possible service to the people of Edinburgh and its visitors.”

The company have teamed up with DF Concerts to give away two tickets to the Robbie Williams concert and free bus travel to get there.

To celebrate the giveaway, Lothian Buses drivers warmed up their vocals chords to belt out a Robbie Williams hit while wearing comedy Robbie Williams masks.
