Mobility scooters on Edinburgh Trams

Last year’s trial  allowing mobility scooters onto Edinburgh’s trams was a big success and certain types of scooters are now officially allowed on the trams.

Edinburgh Trams have now made it easier for customers to obtain a permit for their scooters:

·         You can now apply via email

·         You can now apply over the telephone

·         You can now apply in person at 8 new locations – all Transport for Edinburgh Travelshops, Park & Ride kiosk at the Edinburgh Trams Information Lounge at the Edinburgh Airport tram stop.

In addition, if you haven’t planned your trip in advance, you can now receive a temporary permit by applying in person at one of the nine sites.
