Overview

Rather than describing the huge number of possibilities arising from 57 stances and seven entrances, this page will merely explain the most likely options from each direction.

From Which Side?

  From Cowcaddens Road (north)
From Killermont Street (South)
Via the Concourse

From Cowcaddens Road (north)

There are two entrances into the stance area, each of which is down two flights of steps. There's a REACT beacon near the west entrance.

From the West Entrance

You arrive in the northwest corner of the stance area, with the main building to your right and the taxi rank/car park to your left. Continue forward (south) till you pass the entrance to the main building, there's a REACT beacon outside this.

Turn left here for stances 1 to 32, continue forward for 57 to 33.

For Stances 1 to 32

Continue (east) past the opening for stance 1 on your right, into the covered walkway. You're now passing stances 2 to 22 on your right, which are separated from the walkway by a metal rail which is interrupted at the beginning and end of each stance. There's an information board on the rail of stance 10.

There's an audio unit on a pillar at the far end of each stance, press the button to check the stance you need, then move back to enter it.

Beyond stance 22, you enter an open area into which the passenger lounge building juts south. Turn right and continue (south) to locate the covered walkway beside stances 23 to 32. There are no audio units associated with these stances.

To Stances 48 to 57

As you continue (south) you're in the walkway between the main building and the stances which are separated from the walkway by a metal rail which is interrupted at the beginning and end of each stance. In this block, the stances are separated by a set of back-to-back seats. The audio unit is on a pillar at the end (south) of each stance, select the stance number you want then come back (north) and take the first turning right to enter it.

To Stances 47 to 33

Continue (south) beyond stance 48 and turn left.

As you continue (east), you enter the walkway beside the stances, a metal rail which is interrupted at the beginning and end of each stance area, separates the stances from the walkway. There's an audio unit on a pillar at the near (south) end of each rail dividing the stances. Select the stance number you need and move forward, taking the first turning left into it.

From the East Entrance

This entrance is only convenient for stances 1 to 32. It would be easier to move along Cowcaddens Road to the west entrance if you need stances 33 to 57.

You enter the covered walkway of stances 1 to 22, opposite stance 10, there's an information board in front of you.

Stances 2 to 22 are separated from the walkway by a metal rail which is interrupted at the beginning and end of each stance. The lower numbered stances are to your right (west).

There's an audio unit on a pillar at the east end of each stance, press the button to check the stance you need, then move back (west) to enter it.

Beyond stance 22, you enter an open area into which the passenger lounge building juts south. Turn right and continue (south) to locate the covered walkway beside stances 23 to 32. There are no audio units associated with these stances

BACK TO TOP

From Killermont Street (South)

There are three entrances into the stance area from Killermont Street. The east entrance is just before the bus access road and has no REACT beacon. Having entered the bus station facing north, you turn left into the walkway beside stance 33.

The middle entrance has a REACT beacon outside it, you enter the walkway opposite stance 41, there's an information board in front of you.

The west entrance has a REACT beacon near the south entrance to the concourse. You enter the southwest corner of the stance area with stances 47 to 33 to your right and 48 to 57 in front of you.

We assume you're more likely to enter this area via the west entrance, however the following information should provide useful guidance from the others.

From the West Entrance from Killermont Street

You enter facing north, turn right (east) towards stances 47 - 33; continue (north) for stances 48 to 57.

To Stances 47 to 33

As you continue (east), you enter the walkway beside the stances, a metal rail which is interrupted at the beginning and end of each stance area, separates the stances from the walkway. There's an audio unit on a pillar at the near (south) end of each rail dividing the stances. Select the stance number you need and move forward, taking the first turning left into it.

To Stances 48 to 57

As you continue (north) you're in the walkway between the main building and the stances which are separated from the walkway by a metal rail which is interrupted at the beginning and end of each stance. In this block, the stances are separated by a set of back-to-back seats. The audio unit is on a pillar at the beginning (south) of each stance, select the stance number you want then take the first turning right to enter it.

BACK TO TOP

Via the Concourse

The main entrance is on the east side of the forecourt which can be reached via steps or underpass from Cowcaddens Road (north) or Killermont Street (south). There's a REACT beacon outside this entrance.

Go through the two sets of automatic doors into the concourse and continue (east) to the far side. There are five exits from this side of the concourse into the stances area. We suggest you take the nearest one, which will bring you into the walkway between the main building and the west block of stances (48 to 57). From here, we suggest the directions from the west entrances from Cowcaddens Road or from Killermont Street should suffice.
