As with most special events, ScotRail will have extra staff at stations to assist, and customers are reminded that the wearing of a face covering remains mandatory on ScotRail trains and in station, and the consumption of alcohol is prohibited on ScotRail services.
Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said:
“We’re really looking forward to helping music lovers travel to see Biffy Clyro this Thursday.
“To help the concert run smoothly, we’re providing extra seats to and from the Strathclyde area, but trains are expected to be busy.
“Make sure to check your train times on our website or app, and leave plenty of time for travel as the last trains of the evening will depart before, or very shortly after, the event finishes. Buying your train tickets in advance will also help reduce your queuing time.”
