Find out how to get to JCMB from Edinburgh Waverley rail station

By Taxi

The taxi rank is situated adjacent to Platform 7. A black cab will cost between £8 and £10 and should take between 10 and 15 minutes, depending on traffic. If the taxi rank is busy, there is also a taxi rank on Waverley Bridge (exit by the ramp adjacent to Platform 19 and turn right) which is sometimes quieter.

By Bus

See getting to JCMB by bus from the city centre for details about bus services from the city centre.

Service 41 with destination King's Buildings leaves from Waverly Bridge will bring you directly to the King's Buildings Campus.

Services 42 and 67 also leave from Waverly Bridge and bring you very close to the King's Buildings Campus. 

To catch the services 3, 3A, 7, 8, 29, 31, 37, 47 or 49, you should depart Waverley station by the escalator adjacent to Platform 19 then up the steps onto Princes Street.
