Few towns in Scotland offer such a unique and diverse range of authentic experiences as Paisley…
From heritage and tradition, to more modern and vibrant cultural pursuits, it really is a town for all seasons and an irresistible option for anyone living and working in the area.
Because as it happens, Paisley is also a town that is perfectly located and incredibly well served by transport links that make commuting by rail, car, bus and even by air simple, fast and cost effective.
Links by rail
Situated less than 15 minutes down the line from Glasgow Central Station, Paisley’s Gilmour Street Station is the fourth busiest rail hub in Scotland. Services operate from early morning until late in the evening with regular services to and from Glasgow, Ayrshire and the Inverclyde coastal lines.
Situated conveniently in the heart of Paisley, Gilmour Street Station is also just a mile from Glasgow Airport, making it a vital transport hub for commuting, visiting and accessing the wide array of leisure opportunities and businesses that Renfrewshire has to offer.
The M8 motorway connects Scotland’s two biggest cities, Glasgow and Edinburgh and serves many other large towns, including Paisley.
Leaving Glasgow city centre, the centre of Paisely is just a 12-minute drive down the road, making for a pleasurable commute and placing the city right on your doorstep.
If the islands and Highlands are your destination however, and stunning scenery is the flavour of the day, taking junction 30 across the mighty River Clyde and Erskine Bridge will lead you away from city life and into the sort of landscapes that Scotland is so famous for.
Helping over 9 million people every year to over 130 destinations around the world, it is no surprise that Glasgow Airport plays such an important role in Scotland’s economy. Served by over 30 airlines, it is less than a five-minute drive from the heart of Paisley and is linked with regular bus services, dedicated rail and bus links and extensive taxi services.
A model of what great public transport services can look like, Paisley’s green credentials are bolstered by a comprehensive bus service to make getting around, cost effective, simple and a genuine alternative to the car. More than 70 busses every hour serve Paisley from area such as Glasgow, Inverclyde and across Renfrewshire. The service provider has a free app, to make planning journeys, tracking busses and purchasing tickets as quick and convenient as possible.
Whether you have a bus to catch, a flight, a weekday commute into the city (or simply a weekend drive into the Highlands planned). Paisley is a town with transport links and a unique location that few other towns can match.
