Travel advice for commuters: Glasgow trains to draw larger crowds than usual

Queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central

Business travellers commuting to and from – and in and around – Glasgow by train this Friday (26 August) could be up against larger crowds than usual due to events taking place at Bellahoustoun Park.
ScotRail is reminding customers that services will be busier than normal as the park plays host to the Glasgow Summer Sessions on Friday and Saturday.
The train operator will be adding carriages to services between Glasgow Central and Dumbreck – the closest station to Bellahouston Park.
Queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the concert.
Passengers who travel on the Paisley Canal route are being advised that buses will replace trains between Glasgow Central and Paisley Canal from 10pm until the end of service on Friday.
A ScotRail spokesman said: “We’re looking forward to helping fans travel by train to the Summer Sessions this weekend.
“Our advice to customers is to make sure to check your train times on our website or app and leave plenty of time for travel.
“Buying tickets in advance will also help reduce your queuing time.
“Regular travellers who use our Paisley Canal line should be aware that services will be much busier than normal with fans heading to the gig.”
As with most special events, ScotRail will have extra staff on the ground to help customers.
