Free shuttle buses for Emirates Airline Glasgow 7s

It has been confirmed today that the free shuttle bus service from Buchanan Street Bus Station in Glasgow city centre and the Partick Interchange, near the West End, will be running once again at the third Emirates Airline Glasgow 7s (3-4 May).

Buses will run at least every 15 minutes from the two destinations and more regularly at peak times.  The first buses will run from 9.45am, plenty of time to be in for the first match v Fiji and Argentina at 10.30am, until 7pm.

A returns service will run between 7pm and 9pm on Saturday 3 and then 7pm to 9.30pm on Sunday 4 May

Scotland 7s head coach, Stephen Gemmell said: “It’s great that Scottish Rugby and their partners Glasgow Life have confirmed the free shuttle bus service once again. 

The buses are brilliant for helping fans get to and from the stadium with ease from prime locations in the city.  All you need to do is show your Emirates Airline Glasgow 7s ticket on the bus and you’ll be taken directly to the stadium.  

“The whole team and I can’t wait to welcome a big crowd to Scotstoun Stadium for the eighth leg of the HSBC Sevens World Series.”

There are still plenty of tickets for all stands available for the weekend, but fans are encouraged to buy quickly before it is too late.  For full ticket information visit www.scottishrugby.org/tournaments-events/emirates-airline-glasgow-7s/tickets.
