2 months ago Thu 30th Nov 2023



McGill’s has announced that its Glasgow Nightbus network will run on Hogmanay, making it easy for customers to get home after bringing in the bells across the city centre.   

The nightbuses, which usually run on Friday and Saturday nights, will operate on Sunday 31st December, every hour until 3:45am on the 1st January. The five routes run across the city, taking people home to Paisley, Pollock, Nitshill, Newton Mearns and Drumchapel.  

McGill’s Glasgow Nightbus network, which launched in August after the company – owned by James and Sandy Easdale – stepped in after they were withdrawn by another provider, have proved a success and now McGill’s is delighted to bring this service to new year revellers who will be out celebrating in Glasgow.   

Alex Hornby, Group Managing Director, said: “Since we launched our Glasgow Nightbus network earlier in the year – one of the first in the UK to run completely with zero-emisison, electric buses - we’ve received a great welcome from those in the nighttime leisure sector across Glasgow and our growing numbers of customers who have come to trust this safe and reliable way to travel after midnight. We’re delighted to now extend coverage further by helping people celebrate and get them home after bringing in the bells on Hogmanay. 

“Not only will this help customers out celebrating, but it will also support hospitality workers to get home safely after a very busy shift.” 

McGill’s full festive timetable was published this week to help customers plan their journeys during the Christmas period.  Whether you are planning some Christmas shopping, visiting family and friends, or heading to a festive night out, opt for the bus to get out and about this December. Don’t forget, if you are under 22 or over 60 you can travel free with a National Entitlement Card.
