How are you getting to the Commonwealth Games?

10 June 2014

A spotlight will be on Scotland this summer as a million spectators head to the Commonwealth Games ‘Glasgow 2014’ during July and August. The Ryder Cup at Gleneagles follows in September. A key part of their experience will be getting to the venues and back home. 

How will public transport cope?

Using public transport features large in Glasgow. The Ryder Cup is served by rail and three park and ride sites among other ways to get there. The media interest, as with the Olympics, is likely to be intense.

Passenger Focus is holding a seminar in Glasgow on Thursday morning looking at preparations and plans. There is still space if you would like to come*. We will unveil our latest work with Transport Scotland,Transport integration in Scotland. Also, we will discuss our work on rail passenger priorities for improvement, and research funded by Network Rail, and First Group on the improvements to Waverley station.

This and other Passenger Focus research will help provide a backdrop to discussions about how these major events will be planned for. It’s going to be an interesting summer of sport all round.
