Many other transport services including ScotRail were also affected by Omicron rearing its head in Scotland.

Cancellations and a reduction of services severely impacted public mobility across the country.

However, as restrictions ease and Covid cases peak, Lothian said the normal weekday service will resume.

A Lothian spokesperson said: “We are pleased to confirm that from this Monday (31 January) a normal weekday service will be reinstated on the Lothian network.

"We'd like to thank all customers for their patience and all colleagues for their continued efforts and commitment during this time.”
