MORE trains will be put on to help music fans get to and from Eminem’s sold-out gig in Glasgow.
The Rap God plays Bellahouston Park for the only Summer Sessions gig of the summer this Thursday and travel firm ScotRail will be putting on more services and extra carriages for the gig in Glasgow’s Southside.
Extra carriages will be added to a number of services on the Paisley Canal route, which will be supplemented by additional services between Dumbreck and Glasgow Central.
Additional carriages will also be added to late night trains from Glasgow to Kilmarnock, East Kilbride, Gourock and Ayr, meaning more seats for those using the service.
In order to free up extra carriages for the busy concert, from 10pm onwards trains on the Paisley Canal route will only run between Glasgow Central and Dumbreck. Replacement buses will operate between Glasgow Central and Paisley Canal, calling at all stations.
Extra staff will also be on hand to make sure everything goes smoothly, and a queueing system will be in place at Dumbreck station after the gig.
Rob Shorthouse, ScotRail Alliance communications director, said: “We all hope that everyone going to see Eminem has a great time. We are putting on extra services and more carriages to help people get to and from the concert hassle free.
“But our services will be very busy, so people should plan their journeys in advance by visiting scotrail.co.uk or downloading the ScotRail app to buy a ticket before travelling. Please make your way to the station as soon as you can after the concert, as the last trains of the night will be leaving soon after.”
Eminem returns to Scotland to play at Bellahouston Park for a second time. Glasgow Summer Sessions announced doors will open at 5pm for the show which is expected to finish at 11pm.
