Aberdeen fans will queue for services to Mount Florida via the carriage driveway on Hope Street, while Hibernian supporters will queue for services to Kings Park via the main concourse in Glasgow Central station. 

After the match, Aberdeen fans should travel home via Mount Florida while Hibernian fans should use Kings Park Station.

On Sunday, Hearts and Rangers fans have been advised by ScotRail to queue on the main concourse within Central station.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail Customer Operations Director, said: “ScotRail is looking forward to helping fans travel to Hampden to cheer on their side in the men’s Scottish League Cup semi-finals. 

“We’re asking customer’s heading to the games to plan ahead and allow more time for travel, as trains will be busy. 
“We’ll be doing all we can to help you travel to the match as hassle-free as possible, which includes more seats on train services to and from Mount Florida and Kings Park. 
"Queuing systems will be in place before and after the matches so please make sure you know where to go. We have a dedicated webpage with more information, and our staff will also be on hand to direct you.
