Revellers this Hogmanay will be able to travel on Edinburgh Trams between the West End and Edinburgh Airport without buying a ticket home after ringing in 2020.

Edinburgh Trams has teamed up with Edinburgh’s Hogmanay producer, Underbelly, to run free trams every 20 minutes from midnight on December 31 to 5am on January 1 between the West End and Edinburgh Airport.

Sarah Singh, Operations Manager, Edinburgh Trams said:

“Over the last three years we have taken over 15,000 customers home during Hogmanay and we’re thrilled to be once again providing free tram travel.  Stay to belt out Auld Lang Syne and let Edinburgh Trams get you home safe.”

This year’s Hogmanay celebrations will include Mark Ronson in the gardens, the Ceilidh under the Castle, the Street Party, and the midnight fireworks display over the castle marking the start of 2020.

Edinburgh Trams also provided free travel to personnel and veterans in uniform or with an appropriate form of identity documentation on Remembrance Sunday.
