ScotRail has released travel advice for sports fans as it prepares for three sporting events taking place this weekend.
Football fans will be heading to Hampden for the William Hill Scottish Cup Final, rugby fans travel to the Celtic Park for the Guinness Pro14 Final, while runners head to capital for the Edinburgh Marathon.
The bumper weekend of sport gets underway on Saturday 25 May with the Scottish Cup Final as Hearts take on holders Celtic at 3pm, before Leinster face Glasgow Warriors in the final of the Pro14 rugby at 6.30pm.
The train operator is adding extra seats to as many trains as possible to help fans travel to the matches, however, trains will still be busy.
A queuing system will be in place at Glasgow Central before the football and at Mount Florida and Kings Park after the match, as well as at Bellgrove and Dalmarnock after the rugby.
The Edinburgh Marathon takes place on Sunday 26 May, and with an early start to the race, ScotRail is asking runners and spectators to consider their travel options.
ScotRail will have extra staff on hand to assist passengers and, as with most major events, alcohol bans will be in place.
What did the officials say?
ScotRail Head of Customer Operations Phil Campbell said:
“It’s the last big weekend of sport for a while, and it’s going to be a busy few days.
“To help the events run smoothly, we’ll be adding extra seats to as many trains as possible. And although we can’t make every train longer, we will be using every train we can.
“I encourage anyone travelling this weekend to allow extra time for travel, and to minimise the need to queue, buy your tickets in advance on the ScotRail app or website.”
