The streets of Edinburgh are getting even wilder this weekend as Lothian’s first ever giraffe print bus has been revealed in partnership with the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland’s Edinburgh Zoo.

To celebrate the wildlife conservation charity’s new giraffe house opening to the public, a brand-new design featuring a high impact giraffe print wrap will run on various routes throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians this summer.

As the official transport partner for Edinburgh Zoo, Lothian has over 30 zoo themed buses running on the 26 route and will also be supporting the zoo’s Giraffe About Town trail which will see over 40 huge giraffe sculptures displayed across the capital in summer 2022.
