GLASGOW's Subway system will reduce to one circle only as of tomorrow.

In response to the Government advice regarding the coronavirus, the Outer Circle service, operating clockwise from Govan, will stop at all stations.

Meanwhile the Inner Circle service has been temporarily scrapped.

A statement from SPT reads: "Moving to this revised operating model reduces the number of train drivers we need, reduces our maintenance requirements, and allows us to concentrate cleaning efforts.

"It builds better resilience into the Subway team protecting our staff in stations, drivers, maintenance team and cleaners while still ensuring we can run services for those who need to travel at this time."

Four trains will run on the Outer Circle offering a six-minute service from stations from 6:30am to approximately 9pm from Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 6pm on Sunday.

The last train from Govan to the City Centre will depart at 20:42.  

The last train will leave the City Centre for Govan at 20:55.

The last train to leave the City Centre and go to all stations is 8:30pm.

SPT say passenger numbers show the busiest Subway section remains West End to City Centre, making the Outer Circle the best option to serve people most needing to travel.

A limited My Bus service will be launched from Partick bus station to Govan bus station to replace a small anti-clockwise section of the Inner Circle to assist passengers who only need to travel this short distance.  

This will run from 7am to 9pm.
