Public transport (the Subway, buses and trains) to and from the venues is included in the cost of your Games tickets on the day of the event you’re attending. So, all you need to do is find the best way for you to get to the appropriate venue.
There is expected to be around 1 million visitors to Glasgow during the XX Commonwealth Games, making an additional 5 million journeys over and above those usually made, so be prepared for travel routes to be busy. Leave plenty of time to get to both your venue and through venue security.
During the two ‘super weekends’ of the Games, the Subway system will operate with an extended service. On Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 July, and again on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 August, it will remain open from 6am until around 1am.
Normal Subway opening hours will apply Monday to Friday 6.30am to 11.30pm.
The Subway runs in a loop around Glasgow city centre and neighbouring areas. There are two lines, with trains on each circuit running in opposite directions. It is an easy means of accessing the West End, particularly the Ibrox and Kelvingrove venues.
The Subway also connects to special bus shuttles to Games venues from Buchannan Street bus station, and rail services from Central and Queen Street Stations.
Subway stations will be busy during morning, lunchtime and evening peak hours, particularly Buchanan Street and St Enoch stations.
Glasgow public bus network connects to all the Games venues. For specific information on frequency and journey times, visit the Traveline Scotland website. For information on which bus services connects to which venue, download the relevant venue guides on the Glasgow 2014 website.
The venues at Celtic Park, Hampden Park, Ibrox and Cathkin Braes can be reached by special bus shuttle services from Glasgow city centre.
Glasgow has an extensive suburban rail network, connecting outlying suburbs with the city centre. There are railway stations near the majority of Games venues although it is worth noting that there may be more convenient ways of getting to the venues, for instance shuttle buses.
Games partner ScotRail have announced plans for increased services for the duration of the event, starting from Monday 21 July and finishing on Sunday 3 August.
Public transport to and from the venues is included in your Games events ticket within the SPT Zonecard area G1 – G8 so be aware that you may well need to purchase a rail ticket to get from your station of origin to the outer limits of the G8 zone.
In addition to visitors attending the Games, there is expected to be the usual commuter traffic in and out of the city's train stations so be sure to leave plenty of time to travel. Stations will be extremely busy at peak times in the morning, lunchtime and evening, particularly Glasgow Queen Street and Glasgow Central.
Car parking in the vicinity of the venues has been suspended so they will be difficult to reach by car. The use of public transport is highly recommended; there are limited opportunities to avail of Park & Ride facilities which need to be pre-booked in advance.
Main arterial roads, including the M8 (junctions 18 - 19), the M77 (north of junction 2), the M74 and the A814 Clydeside Expressway, will be busy during Games times as will city centre streets including George Square, Ingram Street, Queen Street, Tollcross Road and Sauchiehall Street.

In addition to local buses and taxis, there are a number of transport options for spectators with access needs.
Each venue offers services including taxis and accessible shuttles as well as motorbility scooters on site. To find out more about transport options for each Games venue, visit the Glasgow 2014 website for more details and for information on how to pre-book using the accessible transport booking line.
Blue Badge holders and wheelchair users can pre-book parking at venues although spaces are limited and restricted to cars. If you have a larger vehicle that needs accommodating, you must contact the accessible transport booking line.
