Travelling between the SEC and Glasgow city centre
   
  Train
The Exhibition Centre station is the SEC's own dedicated railway station allowing easy access from the city centre and the suburbs. There are six trains an hour leaving from Platform 17 at the Central station (platform 17 is on the lower level). The journey time from Central station to the Exhibition Centre station is only three minutes. Once you've alighted from the train, climb the stairs, turning right at the top and use the footbridge to join the conference.
   
  Bus
The 100 Riversider service runs from George Square (north) in Glasgow city centre to the SEC, then Riverside Museum and return, every 30 minutes. A timetable is downloadable from here.

In addition, two other bus services operate from adjacent to the SEC, stopping on Lancefield Street near the Clyde Arc bridge, only a 2 minute walk from the main venue. These services travel to and from the city centre regularly. Full details are available on the operators’ websites at the following links: X19 Stagecoach Timetable and McGills 23 Service Timetable.
   
  Taxi
There are taxi ranks throughout the city. Main pick-up points include Buchanan Bus Station, Queen Street and Central stations and most large hotels. An average journey from the city centre to the SEC should cost around £6.00 but may be more in the evenings.
   
  Walking
If you are feeling fit, why not make your way to the SECC on foot? The local area around the SEC is serviced by a footpath and a footbridge network. There are also two foot bridges which cross the Clydeside express way at both the front and the rear of the SEC. There are two pedestrian bridges crossing from the Science Centre to the SEC Conference Centre. The new Clyde Arc bridge (otherwise known as the 'Squinty Bridge') carries both traffic and pedestrians from one side of the river to the other. Use Google Maps to plan your route on foot
