"We were delighted to welcome Transport for Edinburgh's promotional bus on campus during Fresher's Week. It gave our staff and students the chance to organise their travel without leaving campus. A great service with the Transport for Edinburgh team on hand to advise on services and ticketing."

"We were delighted at the support Transport for Edinburgh gave during our Green Travel Week by attending our Green Travel Fair with their pop-up shop. This gave Standard Life employees the chance to find out more about TfE's routes and ticketing options. TfE's pop-up shop is a hassle-free way of informing your team about environmentally friendly ways to get to and from work and meetings."
