Advice for fans travelling to Dundee Utd v Aberdeen League Cup semi-final



We’ve put together some tips for fans travelling to Glasgow for the Dundee Utd v Aberdeen League Cup semi-final on Saturday, 31 January. 

On this day, in addition to scheduled services, dedicated ‘special’ trains will operate between both cities and Glasgow to transport fans to and from the game.

What ScotRail is doing to make the day run smoothly:

  • Operating ‘special’ football trains between both cities and Glasgow
  • Adding carriages to trains between Glasgow and Mount Florida - but fans should still be prepared for a busy journey
  • Putting queuing systems in place at Aberdeen, Dundee, and Glasgow Central stations on the outbound journey, and at Mount Florida and Glasgow Queen Street stations on the return
  • Enforcing alcohol bans to help make sure everyone can safely enjoy the day. 
  • Issuing messages through the media, our website, stations, and via partner organisations to keep everyone informed
  • Working with partners including British Transport Police and football clubs

What you can do to ensure an easier journey:

  • If possible, travel on the ‘special’ trains where you will be guaranteed a seat
  • Purchase your tickets in advance, including onward travel to Mount Florida, either from booking offices (‘special’ train tickets can only be purchased at stations), our app, website, or via telesales on 0330 303 0111
  • Allow extra time for travel as it will be very busy
  • Consider travelling earlier in the day as you may not be able to board the first train you aim for
  • Be prepared to stand if you don’t have a seat reservation (unless boarding a ‘special’ train)
  • Listen to advice from ScotRail staff and BTP officers
  • Get back to the station in plenty of time and don’t rely on the last train as you may not be able to get on
  • Make sure you join the correct queue at Glasgow Queen Street station on the return journey
  • Don’t drink or visibly carry alcohol on trains before and after the game when a ban will be enforced by British Transport Police – this is in addition to our 9pm-10am alcohol ban
