Queuing systems will be in place at stations before and after the final whistle for both Scottish Cup semi-finals, which include Glasgow Central, Mount Florida, Kings Park, and key stations across the network.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail head of customer operations, said: “We’re preparing for a big weekend of football and festivals, with fans travelling to Glasgow to cheer on their

team in the Scottish Cup semi-finals, while music lovers will be heading to Pavilion festival in Ayr and Stereofunk in Chatelherault.

“To help the events run smoothly, we’ll be running as many trains as possible over the weekend, however, trains will be much busier than normal, so our advice to customers is to plan ahead.

“I encourage anyone travelling this weekend to allow extra time for travel, and to minimise your need to queue, buy your return tickets in advance on the ScotRail app or website.”

ScotRail will have extra staff on hand at key stations across the network to help customers, who are also reminded that the consumption of alcohol remains prohibited on ScotRail services and in ScotRail stations.
