Transport Arrangements for Glasgow 2014

Information on how the transport network around Glasgow will be affected during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games has been published by Glasgow City Council.

At the same time, a campaign has launched to raise awareness of the potential impact of the games on Glasgow residents, and to encourage them to plan ahead when they need to travel around the city.

Around one million additional visitors are expected to come to Glasgow during the games and visit different venues across the city. The Get Ready Glasgow website contains information on when and where the busiest locations are expected to be, to help people plan their trips.

“The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games will see over 6,500 athletes and officials come to Glasgow for 11 days of fantastic competition that will put Glasgow and Scotland on the world stage,” explained David Grevemberg, Glasgow 2014 Chief Executive.

“We’ve seen unprecedented interest in the Games, including amazing demand for tickets from people all over Scotland, the rest of the UK and internationally,” he added. “We know this means the city will be bustling with activity come Games time and transport networks will be busier than usual.”

“Transport operators will have lots of measures in place to assist, from shuttle buses to enhanced services with later trains. We’re asking our spectators, and those who live and work in the city, to play their part too by considering changes to their normal routine that can help with daily travel during what will be a special time for Glasgow and for Scotland,” he concluded.
