Visitor Transport Service
Visiting loved ones in hospital is not always easy, particularly for older people, people living with a disability or those on low income. That’s where the Hospital Evening Visitor Transport Service comes in. Set up to provide transport for people visiting patients in hospital, the service will pick you up from home, take you to the hospital and take you home again later.
Who can use it? – The service is available to anyone who lives within Glasgow City, Cambuslang/Rutherglen, East Dunbartonshire or Renfrewshire. Priority will always be given to visitors wishing to travel to their nearest hospital, to older people (over 60), individuals registered disabled or those on a low income.
How to Book? – To book transport to your nearest hospital, contact the booking hotline: 0845 128 4027. Lines are open 1-4pm (Mon-Thurs) and 1-3.30pm (Friday). For transport to destinations other than your nearest hospital please call the booking hotline after 3pm.
When you call you will need to register. You will be asked for information to help us make sure that people who really need the service are given priority. All information will be treated in the strictest confidence and in compliance with the Data Protection Act. You will need to tell us where you live, which hospital you wish to visit and what time visiting begins and ends. Your pick up will be confirmed over the telephone. You will be collected as near as possible to your front door. Provided you are visiting your local hospital you can book transport up to one week in advance.
