Overview

There is stairs and lift access between platforms via the bridge, which is about in the middle of the station.

Platform 1 is a terminus for services to Balloch and Milngavie, whilst platform 2 is also a through platform for westbound services towards Glasgow and Helensburgh Central. The new platform (3) serves eastbound trains towards Edinburgh.

The doors will open as follows, as you face the front of the train:

There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform.

As you move from the rear of longer, terminating trains, you pass the waiting room, toilet, lift then the steps to the bridge.

As you move from the rear of longer, westbound trains, you pass the ticket office building, then another building before you reach the steps to the bridge. The lift door is in the far side of the first building beyond these steps.

You go up six then three times eight steps, onto the bridge then turn right. Turn right again at the end then go down three times eight then six steps, before turning right onto the platform. We believe you're about in the middle of the train.
