FIND AN EXIT FROM A PLATFORM
This is a terminus station with one island platform 2 - 3 and a separate platform between the track and the station car park.
As you face the front of the train, the doors will open on your left if you arrive on platform 1 or 3. If you arrive on platform 2, the doors will open on your right. There is tactile paving along the edge of each platform. Note that tracks 1 - 2 extend about ten metres beyond the end of track 3.
We suggest you go beyond the front of the train, into the concourse.
If you arrive on platform 1, you could turn left before the front of the train, into the car park, however, be sure you're on platform 1, not platform 3 where track 2 extends beyond the front of your train. It may be better to be sure you're in the concourse before trying to leave the platform.
See the Environs page for details of exits from this station.
Turn left and go through the doors in front of you, into the ticket office. Continue, through another set of doors, down a single step into East Princes Street.
Follow the right-hand side of the concourse then take the turning right. You go up then down a slope before you reach the car park.
Turn left, continue to the wall or doors in front of you then turn left again. Now follow the right-hand side then take the turning right. You pass between bollards before crossing the narrow car park and continue through open gates into East Princes Street.
