The bus will be handing out presents at secret locations to be announced on the company’s Twitter feed, as a way of saying thank you to customers for their support.
It already has planned visits to Currie Primary and Woodlands School lined up, with gifts including day tickets, model buses, jigsaws and chocolate. The first five people at each location will receive a week’s free bus travel.
Ian Craig, managing director of Lothian Buses, said: “Lothian Buses would be nothing without the support and loyalty of our customers.
“We are delighted to be able to give them something back this Christmas.”
