ScotRail issues travel advice ahead of Guns N’ Roses and TRNSMT at Glasgow Green
ScotRail is urging people travelling to Glasgow Green to see Guns N’ Roses perform or attend TRNSMT to plan ahead, and to consider their travel options.
Iconic rock band, Guns N’ Roses, play Glasgow Green on Tuesday, 5 July with doors opening at 4.30pm, while Paolo Nutini, The Strokes, and Lewis Capaldi headline TRNSMT on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 8-10 July, respectively. The gates at TRNSMT open at 12pm each day.
ScotRail is urging customers heading to the events to travel early if they can, allow plenty of time for their journey, and to consider their travel options when heading home.
Due to the temporary timetable currently in place, there will be a very limited number of trains out of Glasgow city centre after 11pm on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday night. These are:
- 23:05 Glasgow Central to Neilston
- 23:17 Glasgow Central to East Kilbride
- 23:21 Glasgow Central to Gourock
- 23:22 Glasgow Queen Street to Stirling
- 23:30 Glasgow Central to Ayr
- 23:45 Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh Waverley
There will be no trains departing Glasgow city centre after TRNSMT ends at 11pm on Sunday, 10 July.
ScotRail is advising customers that space on board the last services each night is limited, and no rail replacement transport is available, so customers should plan ahead, check their entire journey, and know what alternative modes of transport are available to them.
Fans travelling to TRNSMT on Saturday, 9 and Sunday, 10 July from the North and South West Scotland may see buses replace trains for part of their journey due to Network Rail engineering work between Inverness and Aberdeen, and between Dumfries and Kilmarnock. Customers should take this into account when planning their journey.
Customers are also encouraged to buy their train tickets in advance via the mTicket system on the ScotRail app.
Buying tickets through the mTickets system means people can buy their tickets from the comfort of their home or on the way to the station and it will instantly become available on their mobile device, reducing their need to queue at the station.
ScotRail will have extra staff to assist customers, and the train operator is reminding everyone that the carrying and consumption of alcohol is prohibited on ScotRail trains and in ScotRail stations.
Phil Campbell, ScotRail Head of Customer Operations, said:
“We have another busy week of live music in Glasgow with Guns N’ Roses and then TRNSMT at Glasgow Green, and we’re urging customers travelling to the events to plan ahead, to check their entire journey, and to know their travel options.
“Due to the temporary timetable currently in place, there will be a very limited number of trains departing the city centre after Guns N’ Roses on Tuesday night, and on the Friday and Saturday of TRNSMT.
“Customers going to TRNSMT on Sunday should be aware that there will be no trains after the event, so please check your entire journey and know what alternative transport is available.”
