Find a platform from an entrance

Overview

There is step-free access from Homeston Road onto each platform. Platforms 1 - 3 can be reached from Smith Street via the concourse, whilst Platform 4 is reached via Station Road. See the Environs page for details.

There is stairs access between platforms 1 - 3 and platform 4 via the bridge.

Platforms 1 and 2 are bay platforms serving trains towards Paisley and Glasgow Central, whilst platforms 3 and 4 are through platforms. We believe platform 3 normally serves northbound trains towards Paisley and Glasgow, whilst platform 4 serves southbound trains towards Stranraer.

We noted, however, that platforms 3 and 4 are divided into north and south sections which may mean they're sometimes used bi-directionally.

There are automatic gates to each platform, including two Wide Aisle Gates in the concourse. There are only standard automatic gates to platform 4.

There is tactile paving along the edge of platform 1, but none at other platforms in this station.
