Ayr Train Station cancellations - What we know so far!

ScotRail have been advised by South Ayrshire Council that an exclusion zone has been imposed at Ayr station, which will have an impact on our services.

This is because the old hotel building next to the station has been deemed unsafe!

This means that from the start of service on Tuesday (28 August):

ScotRail are working hard to get ticket acceptance with local bus operators in place to get people to Stranraer, and will confirm if and when this is available.

- There will be no services between Ayr and Girvan.

It also means that:

- Services between Ayr and Glasgow Central will have reduced capacity because of the restrictions that have been applied by the council.

A number of early morning services will also be subject to cancellation as we no longer have access to the Ayr Townhead servicing depot!

Bus services will also operate at points along the route to get people where they need to be.

- Customers travelling from Paisley Gilmour Street to Glasgow Central should use services from platform 1 if possible (Gourock and Wemyss Bay services).
