Travel advice for major events

Wednesday, 21 June 2017

Here we pick out some of the very top events currently on the horizon, with tips on reaching them by train.

The Stone Roses, Hampden Park, Saturday 24 June

Mount Florida station is the closest to Hampden – a 5 minute walk from the stadium.

Please consider both legs of your journey, and buy your rail tickets, in advance – not on the day. Tickets can be purchased on the ScotRail app, at scotrail.co.uk or by calling 0344 811 0141.

Consider aiming to arrive at Hampden when doors open at 5pm, to avoid the busiest travel times.

Trains will be very busy heading to and from the gig so queuing systems will be in place.

Please be aware that the last trains of the night will depart soon after the end of the gig. If your taking the train home, head back to Mount Florida stations as quick as you can, where queues will be formed down Bolton Drive.

As these trains will be the last departures of the evening, no connections are guaranteed. Extra carriages will be added to these services.

To help things go smoothly, we’ll have extra staff on hand to assist. Please follow their instructions, and buy your tickets in advance.
