Opening in 1896, the Glasgow Underground is the third oldest Subway in the world.
The vast majority of the city falls within the Subway route and that is why you will see on our listings the nearby station for that business or location. At anytime you are rarely more than a 5 minute walk to your destination from the Subway station. Trains run from 6.30am to 11.45pm Monday to Saturday and from 10am to 6pm on Sundays.
Covering 15 stations in a circular route, the subway is one of the most efficient ways to get around the West End, City Centre and Southside of the city. With rail and bus interchanges on the route, the Subway plays a crucial part in Glasgow’s transport system.
There are a number of ticket options but our favourite is the Discovery Ticket, priced at only £3.80*. For this you can enjoy unlimited travel on the subway anytime after 9.30am Monday to Saturday and all day Sunday. A single adult fare is currently £1.40*.
With trains running every 4 minutes during peak times on both Inner and Outer circles, this is one of the fastest ways to get around. Clean and safe, the average journey time between stations is 2 minutes.
Better for the environment
More than 14 million journeys are made each year using the Glasgow Underground. By joining these passengers you will be helping to reduce your carbon footprint.
For those of you starting out your journey by car, Park & Ride facilities are available at 3 stations. Kelvinbridge, Bridge Street and Shields Road are all equipped with CCTV surveillance and provide the best options for avoiding congestion and expensive city centre parking charges. Subway Park and Ride (including return Subway Ticket) cost £5*.
As of October 2010, you can now browse the web and check your emails at any of the 15 subway stations. The service provided by The Cloud, is free for the first 15 minutes and means you can make the best use of your time on the platform.
There has never been a better time to go underground!
