Extra carriages and services for Green Day fans

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

UPDATE: Due to the concert being cancelled, we will be running a full service along the Paisley Canal route as normal.

The ScotRail Alliance is making changes to services for Green Day fans heading to and from the punk rockers’ gig in Bellahouston Park on 4 July.

To help everyone get home, extra carriages will be added to a number of services on the Paisley Canal route, which will be supplemented by additional services. The last trains from Glasgow to Kilmarnock, East Kilbride, Gourock and Ayr will also have more seats.

In order to allow this, from 10pm onwards trains on the Paisley Canal route will only run between Glasgow Central and Dumbreck direct. Replacement buses will operate between Glasgow Central and Paisley Canal, calling at all stations.

Extra staff will be on hand to make sure everything goes smoothly, and a queueing system will be in place at Dumbreck station after the gig.

Rob Shorthouse, ScotRail Alliance communications director, said: “We all hope that everyone going to see Green Day has the time of their life. To reduce your need to queue, please buy your ticket in advance – not on the day.

“Please make your way to the station as soon as you can after the concert, as the last trains of the night will be leaving soon after.”


The last train from Glasgow Central to Paisley Canal will depart at 2142, with the last journey from Paisley Canal leaving at 2205.
