No trains will run from Glasgow on Sunday night after music festival TRNSMT ends, ScotRail has announced.

Headlined by Glaswegian singer Lewis Capaldi, the final night of the festival will end long after the last trains have departed from Central Station.

The three-day festival will welcome at least 50,000 people to Glasgow Green to see Paolo Nutini top the bill on Friday, and The Strokes on Saturday.

Gates at the venue will be open from 12pm each day, and ScotRail has recommended attendees travel to the venue early where possible and look into alternative travel options.

Fans from north and south-west Scotland have also been advised that bus replacement services could be in place on Saturday and Sunday due to Network Rail engineering works between Inverness and Aberdeen and between Dumfries and Kilmarnock.

The rail operator was forced to slash hundreds of services recently amid strikes by members of the Aslef union.

Members of the union have refused to work overtime or on rest days, forcing the national rail operator to run a reduced service.

There will be no trains leaving Glasgow city centre after the festival closes on Sunday. A limited number of services will run after 11pm throughout Friday and Saturday night.

The final trains departing Glasgow on Friday and Saturday are:

  • 11.05pm Glasgow Central to Neilston
  • 11.17pm Glasgow Central to East Kilbride
  • 11.21pm Glasgow Central to Gourock
  • 11.22pm Glasgow Central to Stirling
  • 11.30pm Glasgow Central to Ayr
  • 11.45pm Glasgow Queen Street to Edinburgh Waverley
