Transportation from the airport to Great Western Road

We will be staying near the Botanic Gardens on GWR and would like to know what our choices are for transport from the airport. We will not have a car. We will be arriving in the afternoon on a Sunday.

I'd like to think there is a direct bus, but if someone doesn't come along with a better suggestion then you could simply catch the regular shuttle bus to Glasgow's main bus station Buchanan Street, then find out which stand the bus for Great Western Road stops at. GWR is on a very short hop from there. I guess you could get a taxi from there for probably less than a fiver!

Someone may have a bus link for you, but I always find them more confusing (Marbles not in good shape!).

there isnt a direct bus. bus links from the airport aren't that great. like the person above says, you'd need to get bus to city centre. i'd get off at queen street station though and then get on underground to either Hillhead or Kelvinbridge. Buchanan St underground is right next to Queen St station.

If there are several people involved and you have luggage you should take a taxi.It's only about 20 minutes through the tunnel to Botanic Gardens.Taking the bus into the city and changing doesn't make sense.

Thanks for all the replies. I checked out Canniesburn taxis and they said the fare is 16 pounds to where we are going so I guess since there are 4 of us and luggage I will get them to pick us up.

Hi Tibbiesmom. Canniesburn Taxis are based in Bearsden, and a pretty reliable lot. I'd say that £16 is money well spent.

really? £6-£10 from the airport to gt western road? That's fantastic! I don't think I have ever got from the airport to west end for under £15! I need to try this taxi company next time!
