From the Bus Stops on the South Side of George Square

Please visit our George Square Page for more details.

At the time of our survey, there was one stop (no. 609073, outside the Information Centre) served by regular services and three others (outside the Post Office building) served by tourist buses. As the regular stop is west of South Hannover Street for which there is no pedestrian crossing, we suggest you walk the short distance west to Queen Street and cross to the inner south pavement of George Square at this point, before turning right (east). From the tourist services, turn left (east) from the bus and cross to the south inner pavement at the junction with South Frederick Street, then turn right.

Having reached the southeast corner of George Square, you can cross to the outer east pavement and turn left. The City chambers building is now on your right. There are four lamp posts near the edge of the kerb, as you pass the second of these, the revolving door is on your right, whilst the push button controlled sliding door is beyond this.
