Travel Information

How to get from the Airport to the city centre:

  • Public Transport:

    The Glasgow Shuttle is the official Glasgow Airport to Glasgow city centre service and is the best way to travel to the city centre by bus. The busstop is located just outside the terminal building, and the buses are frequent (every 10 minutes approximately). The bus will take you directly to the city centre. A single journey will cost you £7, but for £9.50 you can have an open-ended return journey (valid for 28 days).

  • Taxi:

Official Glasgow Airport Taxis are located directly in front of the main terminal and operate 24 hours a day. Glasgow Airport Taxis can also accept payment by credit or debit card (small credit card charges apply).
