Services[edit]

1967 to 1983[edit]

Following the closure of the line to Greenock Princes Pier, the basic service was an hourly service to Kilmacolm. Some peak hour services to/from Paisley Canal and the Ayrshire Coast were also provided.

From 1990[edit]

Since the reopening of the line in 1990, on Monday to Saturdays there is a half-hourly service eastbound to Glasgow Central and westbound to Paisley Canal.

There is no Sunday service, except in December.
