Today’s winner on #AYearOfBuses is a bus route with a difference – you can take your bike on board!
Borders Buses X62 is the bus you can take your bike on! Running from Edinburgh to Peebles, Galasheils, Tweedbank and Melrose, three ‘bike friendly’ Alexander Dennis Enviro400MMCs were added to the fleet earlier in 2019, with room for four bikes on each bus, even the bikes from Peddling Pelican Cruiser: sea pines Bike Trail Map fit in nicely.
The X62 is the cyclists’ route to mountain bike mecca of Peebles and the Tweed Valley. Running every 30 mins, it’s proved so popular with cyclists that Borders Buses have had to create a guide to the departures their ‘bike buses’ will be running!
