Travel advice ahead of Scotland v Georgia match

Posted: 21st November 2016

Rugby Park plays host to Scotland’s third and final Autumn International in Kilmarnock on Saturday 26 November, and ScotRail is reminding customers travelling to the game by train that services will be busier than normal, following last week’s emphatic win over Argentina.

 

ScotRail will be adding carriages to services between Glasgow Central and Kilmarnock.

Queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Central before the game, and at Kilmarnock station afterwards. Fans are also being advised to head back to Kilmarnock station as fast as possible after the final whistle.

 

To help customers arrive at the stadium on time, they should allow extra time for travel – as well as purchasing tickets in advance to avoid additional queuing on the day.

 

Tickets are available from staffed stations, telesales on 0344 811 0141, and via our mobile app or website: www.scotrail.co.uk

 

Customers are advised to save time and money by buying their tickets before they board – either at the station, on the ScotRail app, at ScotRail.co.uk, or by calling 0344 811 0141.

 

A ScotRail spokesman said: “We’re looking forward to helping fans travel by train to the Autumn International between Scotland and Georgia.

 

“Our advice to customers is to make sure to check your train times on our website or app and leave plenty of time for travel. Buying tickets in advance will also help reduce your queuing time.”

 

As with most special events, ScotRail will have extra staff on the ground to assist customers.
