Lothian Buses celebrate 100 years in Edinburgh with cavalcade
Lothian Buses are celebrating 100 years of being in the city this weekend at their Centenary Cavalcade.
The procession which takes place on Sunday 28 July will let long time locals take a trip down memory lane by showcasing vintage vehicles which have served the people of Edinburgh in the last century.Starting at 10am from Wester Coates in the West End, the buses will drive through the city centre and run to Regent Terrace.
The vehicles will then be displayed at the East End of George Street, between Hanover Street and St Andrew Square between 11am and 2pm where the public will be able to view them.
The 26 vehicles on display will include some of Lothian Buses’ oldest fleet dating back to the 1940s right up until modern day.
“We hope to see as many employees, members of the local community and visitors as possible along to help us celebrate this truly historic moment in our company’s history.”
