RANGERS are in action in the Scottish Cup Final on Saturday and fans attending the game should read the following travel advice.
Persons attending events at Hampden Park should be aware that the area immediately surrounding the stadium is mainly residential and the availability of on-street parking is extremely limited due to event specific parking restrictions.
On event days we would advise persons attending Hampden Park where possible to use public transport to get to and from the stadium, if not travelling by organised coach/bus.
Parking Wardens will be on duty patrolling the restricted areas.
Detail with regard to getting to and from the stadium can be found on the following websites:
This is an excellent source of information regarding all forms of public transport to and from the stadium and provides up to date, live time information. The Journey Planner can be found at https://www.travelinescotland.com/
Additional carriages and services run both pre and post event, Rangers supporters are encouraged to use Mount Florida and Heart of Midlothian supporters are encouraged to use Kings Park train stations.
