What ScotRail services are getting extra carriages during COP26?

During COP26, ScotRail will operate six-carriage trains on the Dalmuir – Motherwell / Larkhall line. Trains between Glasgow and Edinburgh via Falkirk High will have eight carriages, while key services to and from the city centre will also have more seats.

Trains will also be leaving Glasgow later than normal each night of the summit.

An all-electric shuttle bus service will also be allowing customers to travel between Glasgow Central and Glasgow Queen Street stations.
