It’s easy to transfer the 13 kilometres (8 miles) from Glasgow Airport (GLA) to the city centre. The best way is to take the regular Glasgow Airport Express bus number 500 that leaves from stop 1 every 10 minutes during the day.
Services are less frequent at other times, but the timetable is 24 hours a day and designed around flight times. You can get off at several stops in Glasgow city centre and a ticket costs £7 for a single. The journey usually takes around 15 minutes, depending on the time of day.
A taxi from the airport to the city centre will cost around £20. You can get a black cab from the taxi rank at the airport 24 hours a day.
The Glasgow Subway runs a circular route with stops both north and south of the River Clyde. It’s the easiest way to travel between the city centre and the West End and costs just £1.40 for a single ticket to anywhere on the system, or £2.70 for all day travel. Trains run from 6.30am, with the last trains departing at 10pm.
Getting around Glasgow by bus is also easy and inexpensive, if slightly less convenient than the subway. Bus tickets cost £1.40 for a short hop in the city centre and £2.15 for a longer journey. You can also buy a day ticket for £4.50.
Thanks to the city’s American-style grid system, it’s easy to find your way. Getting around Glasgow on foot is also the best way to get a feel for the place and a 40-minute stroll from the city centre to the West End will take you through some of the city’s most elegant neighbourhoods.
