Firm puts 4x4s to the fore

Have your say

Lothian Buses workers are to patrol bus routes in 4x4 vehicles throughout the winter in order to try to ensure services continue to operate.

The company has hired five Land Rovers, in addition to one it already owns, to ensure staff can get around routes and spot streets where buses may encounter problems.

Teams will work round the clock to ensure any issues are discovered before buses get out on to the routes.
