Princes Street coach ban proposal discarded
The idea of banning tourist coaches from Princes Street in Scotland will not see the light of day. Due to the intervention of CPT Scotland, coaches will continue to drive along the iconic street of Edinburgh.
The famous shopping street which offers one of the best views of the Castle and Princes Street Gardens is a key feature in any tour of the city of Edinburgh’s highlights. Forbidding coaches from accessing it would have prevented tourists to enjoy the splendid view.
CPT also underlined the fact that a significant amount of the Scottish capital’s visitors are elderly and mobility impaired.
