How to get around in glasgow
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IN GLASGOW
Glasgow is a very compact city and easy to get around on foot. Most delegates will be able to walk from their hotel to the SEC or any social events.
Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) is responsible for the coordination of public transport in Glasgow. The following website provides accessibility and information on each mode of transport in the area, as well as access guides, useful contacts, and links to learn more: https://www.spt.co.uk/
The SEC is linked to the city center and Glasgow Central Station by rail (2 stops) Visit the ScotRail website for information on all routes and timetables: https://www.scotrail.co.uk/
The ScotRail Conference Rover Ticket is valid for 5 days for 5 GBP. It offers delegates unlimited travel on the rail link between the SEC and the main hotel district and city centre, as well as half price rail travel around Scotland so delegates can discover a little bit more of what the country has to offer once the conference has ended.
No advance purchase is necessary and can be bought from one of the ‘Conference Zone’ ticket offices on presentation of a delegate badge.
