ScotRail is urging Ayrshire music fans attending the upcoming TRNSMT festival in Glasgow to plan their travel in advance due to the company's temporary timetable.

The popular festival will see famous acts take to the stage in Glasgow including The Strokes, Jimmy Eat World, Lewis Capaldi, Sam Fender plus many more.

On the reduced timetable, there are around two trains per hour from Ayr to Glasgow Central, with trains departing roughly on the hour and half past.

However, the schedule for Sunday, July 10 is yet to be confirmed.

A very limited number of trains will be running from the city centre after 11pm on Friday, and Saturday night and no trains will be departing from the centre after 11pm on Sunday. 

On all days, except Sunday, the last train from Glasgow Central to Ayr will depart at 11.30pm. 

TRNSMT will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at Glasgow Green.

Gates for Tuesday’s concert will open at 4.30pm while TRNSMT’s gates will open at 11am each day, and neither event has a set finish time. 

Phill Campbell, ScotRail’s Head of Customer Operations, said: “We have another busy week of live music in Glasgow with TRNSMT at Glasgow Green, and we’re urging customers travelling to the events to plan ahead, to check their entire journey, and to know their travel options.

“Due to the temporary timetable currently in place, there will be a very limited number of trains departing the city centre on the Friday and Saturday of TRNSMT.”

ScotRail warns that space on trains is limited, but that no rail replacement buses will be offered for members of the public who cannot board their last trains home. 

Mobile tickets can be bought in advance via the ScotRail app and this will allow passengers to secure their seats and avoid queues at ticket booths. 

The advice follows travel congestion experienced after the Ed Sheeran concert at Hampden on June 16, which left many concertgoers - who opted to drive due to the lack of trains from nearby stations - stuck in traffic for hours. 

Revellers are also reminded that carrying and consuming alcohol is prohibited on trains.
