Travelling around Glasgow - city transport guide

The best way to travel around Glasgow is to use the city’s easy to use Underground system whose stations are sign-posted with a large orange U. The system runs from 6.30am until 10pm from Monday to Saturday and 11am until 5.30pm on Sundays. For anyone travelling beyond the city centre or the West End it is best to use the bus and train networks

If you want to avoid public transport you can hail a black cab anywhere in the city. There are also taxi ranks at Buchanan Street bus station and at Central and Queen Street train stations. Taxis operate all day and night and are extremely reasonable

Concession travel tickets include
Daytripper Ticket Ideal for families, this ticket provides unlimited travel throughout Strathclyde for one day by train, underground, most bus and some ferry routes for groups of 2 adults and up to 4 children or 1 adult and up to 2 children. For more information visit the SPT Website

Discovery Ticket Allows unlimited travel by underground for one day. Valid after 0930 Monday-Saturday and all day Sunday. Discovery Tickets can be bought from any underground station, vouchers are available from SPT travel centres which should be exchanged for a ticket at an underground station

Roundabout Ticket Allows unlimited train travel around Glasgow and surrounding towns as well as on the underground. Valid Monday-Friday after 0900, Saturday, Sunday and public holidays all day
