Susan Boyle isn’t the only one heading to the Commonwealth Games.

Organisers expect rail services to be busier than usual and are urging passengers to think about travelling earlier or later.

Some bus routes will be diverted during the Games and there is no parking at or near each venue, except for wheelchair users and blue badge holders.

The new Games Route Network is in full operation from today and runs from the east of the city to the southside and out to venues in the west.

It’s open to all traffic with the exception of the Games Lanes, which will operate like bus lanes dedicated to official Games travel. Drivers using the Games Lanes without authorisation could face a fine.

For ticketholders, most Glasgow venues are within walking and cycling distance of the city centre and Clydesiders – Games volunteers – will be on hand to advise on the best routes. Additional cycle parking is also available at venues.

Ticketholders can use local public transport within the Games Zone when travelling to and from events by showing their Games tickets.

Additional Games shuttle buses will run from Glasgow Buchanan Bus Station to Celtic Park, Hampden Park, Ibrox and from Stockwell Street to Cathkin Braes.

Organisers are encouraging those travelling to the Games to use the bookable park-and-ride services for Celtic Park (for Wednesday’s opening ceremony), Hampden, Ibrox, Strathclyde Country Park and Cathkin Braes.

Spectator transport information, including how to book park-and-ride, is available atwww.glasgow2014.com/transport. (Source: http://www.scotlandnow.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/glasgow-2014-your-survival-guide-3889910)
