The best way to travel around Glasgow is to use the city’s easy to use Underground system whose stations are sign-posted with a large orange U. The flat fare is 80p but you can buy a day ticket for £2.50; a multi-journey costs £5.40 for ten journeys or £10 for twenty. The system runs from 6.30am until 10pm from Monday to Saturday and 11am until 5.30pm on Sundays. For anyone travelling beyond the city centre or the West End it is best to use the bus and train networks. Get information on buses by picking up individual timetables at the Travel Centre on St Enochs Square. Information on related services is also given at some bus stops. The suburban train network is also a fast and convenient way of getting around. If you are planning on staying in the city for a week or more it is worth while investing in a Zonecard, which covers all public transport networks and is valid for a week or a month. The price is dependent on the amount of zones you wish to travel through.
If you want to avoid public transport you can hail a black cab anywhere in the city. There are also taxi ranks at Buchanan Street bus station and at Central and Queen Street train stations. Taxis operate all day and night and are extremely reasonable.
