TO REACH THE MAIN RAIL STATIONS

Overview

This page describes our recommended route to Glasgow Queen Street and Central stations. You can use the bus service which serves all three stations, or take a short walk. Although it may be quicker to reach Central Station by continuing south along West Nile Street, the route we suggest here passes through a more interesting shopping area along Buchanan Street.

By Bus

The bus currently leaves from Stance 1, however from 12 December 2004 it will no longer enter the bus station but will pick up and drop off at the stop in Killermont Street opposite John Lewis. On arrival at Queens Street, you're outside the east entrance (North Hannover Street) and at Central, you're outside the travel centre. Turn left and locate the station entrance on your right.
