How To Get To Ayr Racecourse By Bus
The Scottish Grand National Festival gets underway with the famous Ladies Day on Friday 12th April 2019 at Ayr Racecourse.
Maybe it's your first time heading to the races at Ayr, or perhaps you're a seasoned race goer. Either way, we know there's loads to think about before the big weekend.
The perfect outfit - tick.
A stunning fascinator - tick.

How you're getting to and from the racecourse - Bus? Tick!
Taxi v Bus
With a taxi from Glasgow to Ayr costing around £80 each way - so £160 in total, and our Group Dayrider ticket from Glasgow to Ayr costing £24 for unlimited travel for that day, you'd save a whopping £136 by going by bus! Think of the drinks you could get in with that!
Which bus to get to Ayr Racecourse
We operate services that drop you right outside the racecourse, meaning no hanging about in huge taxi queues or walking the looooong (and painful in heels) walk from the train station. So, let's cover how you get there and which tickets to buy.
I'm travelling from Glasgow...
Catch our luxurious X77 coach at Buchanan Bus Station from Stance 5, there's comfy e-leather seats, charging points for your phone and free wifi so you can upload your #RacesOOTD to Insta with ease! You'll hop off at Ayr Bus Station and from there catch the 43, 43A or the X16 which will drop you right across from the racecourse!
