The Glasgow 2018 European Championships will be held at venues across Scotland from Thursday 2 August until Sunday 12 August. This will result in changes for access to Glasgow Queen Street.
Glasgow City Council is closing roads across Glasgow to accommodate the 2018 European Championships.
While ScotRail train services will be running as normal, there will be temporary changes to the 398 bus service that runs between Glasgow Central, Glasgow Queen Street, and Glasgow Buchanan Bus Station.
These changes will be in place on Wednesday 1 August, Sunday 5 August, Wednesday 8 August, Friday 10 August, and Sunday 12 August.
To help your journey run smoothly, we are asking anyone who needs assistance and wishes to travel on the bus between Glasgow Central & Glasgow Queen Street on the affected dates to consider booking assistance in advance. You can do this via https://www.scotrail.co.uk/plan-your-journey/accessible-travel
Passengers who do not require assistance should make the short walk to the temporary bus stop or walk between the two stations instead.
