    Edinburgh Bus Taxi

    My wife and I are coming through to Edinburgh in a few weeks. We have a room booked in the Malmaison in Leith.

    What Bus goes there from Princess St? Or what would a private cab cost roughly from Princess Street say from Balmoral Hotel area.

    If you mean Princes Street, a 16 or a 22.

    Cabbies won't go that far into Leith. Too dodgy.

    A taxi will be about a tenner from the Waverley.

    There are several buses though and the Embrace guys will keep you right.
    Buy nothing online unless you check for free cashback here first. I've already earned £1,789.68!

    I don't mean to sound sarcastic, but just put it into Google maps. It'll tell you exactly which buses you can get and at what times. It will also give you prices for Uber, etc.

    It's not sarcastic but I liked on this occasion to hear from people who know.

    I assume that's sarcasm. A black cab will cost around £8 from Balmoral area.

    No idea what Uber/PHC will charge.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Uber could be anything from a fiver to 40 quid depending on demand.

    Got a taxi the other day from Waverley to Victoria Quay and it was a fair bit more than that. Iím from Edinburgh so I know the route, albeit I understand cabbies are more up to speed on road closures and traffic works.

    Due to Leith St being closed it is a wee bit dearer but £10 should get you down, if it's just Prnces St you want Leith St is not a problem. There's a taxi rank on the bridge at the shore and a bus stop 20 yards from the rank, both 2 mins from the hotel.

    Malmaison to Balmoral is between £6 and £9 by Uber if the prices havenít surged. Will take you 10 mins or so.

    If you download the ďmytaxiĒ app thereís an option to estimate a fare. Let me know if you do and Iíll message you a link that gets you £15 off your first fare.

    Even better, use the Traveline Scotland journey planner.

    Check 'buses' on the filter tool, enter start and end point, approx time of day that you'll be travelling. Its easy to use and a great help for any journey ;-)

    Good stuff Billy.
    The beauty about using Traveline Scotlands journeyplanner, is that it includes all operators, not just the obvious one's such as Lothian Buses as was mentioned in an earlier post.
