Travel Information

Travelling into Glasgow from the airport

From Glasgow Airport: The best way to get to the centre of Glasgow is by bus number 905 from outside the main terminal. There is one at least every 30 minutes (every 10 minutes at peak times, Monday-Friday) and the journey takes 20-35 minutes depending on traffic. You can buy a return ticket, valid for one month, from the driver and it costs £5.00. A single ticket is £3.50. The bus stops near some of the larger hotels, at Queen Street Station and at Buchanan Bus Station. Taxis from the airport are available, but are fairly expensive because the airport is outside the Glasgow boundary. A journey into the centre of Glasgow should cost about £20.

Tickets can be purchased on the train - a single ticket is £5.20. If you've flown with Ryan Air, show a print-out of your booking for a 50% discount.
