From Sunday, August 14, Perryman’s Buses will increase its frequency and extend the route of its Berwick to Edinburgh commuter service 253.

The bus service will operate hourly between Edinburgh and Berwick, via Dunbar and Haddington, with key commuter times enhanced during peak periods. Extra journeys to Edinburgh’s west end including Haymarket Station have also been introduced.

Perryman’s was acquired by West Coast Motors earlier this year and they are adding a £600,000 fleet of new vehicles to serve the route from October, offering more comfortable seating, free WiFi and equipped with USB charging stations.
