The nearest rail station to Bellahouston Park is Dumbreck, on the Glasgow to Paisley Canal line. Extra carriages are to be added to the route for the duration of the show. 

Buses will replace trains on the route from 10pm on both nights for the Glasgow Central to Paisley Canal route, calling at all stations on the way.

ScotRail Head of Customer Operations Phil Campbell said: “This year’s Summer Sessions has another fantastic line up, and we’re really looking forward to helping music lovers travel to see their favourite bands.

“We’re adding lots of extra services over the three-day event and thousands of extra seats, but trains will still be very busy, so people should plan their journeys in advance.

“Buying a return ticket to Dumbreck before you travel will help make your journey run smoothly.

“We’d ask anyone travelling home by train to be mindful of our neighbours when you’re making your way back to the station.”

Ibrox and Cessnock subway stations are within 30 minutes walk from the park. Walking the entire way to and from the city centre should take under an hour.
