ScotRail to put on extra services

The train operator has announced that for the Harry Styles concerts, it is adding extra seats to services, wherever possible, on routes in and out of Edinburgh Waverley, with extra trains planned for after the concerts.

ScotRail is encouraging fans to get to the venue early as trains will be very busy. Haymarket station is also expected to be much busier than normal in the early evening with travelling football fans and concertgoers using the station. When the concert ends, music-lovers are encouraged to walk, if they can, back to Haymarket station as quickly as possible and join the holding area on Haymarket Terrace, where they will then be directed to the appropriate queue.

Customers travelling to and from Fife may consider travelling to and from the concert via Edinburgh Gateway station. Edinburgh Trams operate fast and frequent connections between the entrance of BT Murrayfield and the station.
