City Sightseeing Glasgow to launch new yellow route

A hop-on-hop-off tour covering the east and south of the city is arriving this summer. 

City Sightseeing Glasgow will expand its offering on Friday 17th May to include a new yellow route. 

It’s original red route tour operates all year round and covers the west and central areas of the city stopping at Glasgow Cathedral, Glasgow Green, Clydeside Distillery, the Riverside Museum, Glasgow University and Kelvingrove Art Gallery.  

The yellow route, which will depart from North Hanover Street near George Square, will stop at 19 locations taking in Tennent’s Brewery, Barrowlands, Celtic Park and Emirates Stadium, Tramway, Pollok Park, the Burrell Collection, House for an Art Lover, Ibrox and Glasgow Science Centre.  

The new route will also provide access to the Southside’s Govan, Strathbungo, Shawlands and Battlefield area as well as Hampden Football Stadium. The yellow route will initially operate as a summer tour, running from May to September. 

The tour lasts up to one hour and 30 minutes and will operate every 30 minutes from 10am to 4pm, seven days a week. With prices starting from £15 for adults and £8 for children.  

For those wanting to enjoy both routes a range of combo tickets will be available, the red and yellow routes will connect at George Sq and North Hanover St, Merchant City, Barras, St Enoch, Oswald St for Central Station and Buchanan Bus Station.  

In addition to launching its new yellow route, the company will introduce 10 new electric buses to its red route this summer. The move to go full electric will make the tour company one of the first in the world to deliver a full electric hop-on-hop-off service. 

City Sightseeing Glasgow’s operations manager, Richy Graham, said: “We are delighted to launch our new yellow route and showcase a host of popular attractions and venues as well as some of the lesser known but equally fascinating parts of the city.  

He added: “Our hop-on-hop-off tours are a great way to explore the city at your own pace. Whether you want to learn more about Glasgow’s industrial heritage, diverse culture, music scene, sports venues or art collections, there is something for everyone on our tour. We look forward to welcoming visitors on board our new yellow route this summer.”
