Lothian buses 23, 27, 35, 45, 47 and Skylink 300 stop right next to Chalmers Centre. Buses 2 and 24 also stop nearby.

There is limited on-street parking nearby. There are lots of spaces in the Marchmont area and it is about half the price of the immediate vicinity of Chalmers - please email me for more specific details. There are also several off-street car parks:
