Shotts station is the last stop before the SPT area boundary on the Shotts Line.
Monday to Saturdays, there is generally a twice hourly service westbound to Glasgow Central (normally every 15 minutes past and half past the hour) and eastbound to Edinburgh Waverley (normally every half past and 55 minutes past the hour). One of these is a semi-fast service serving Bellshill, Livingston South, West Calder & Haymarket only, whilst the other stops at all intermediate stations except Cambuslang (limited service) & Breich (which has only one call each way per weekday).
Since 9 December 2012 there has been a new two-hourly Sunday service between Glasgow Central and Edinburgh Waverley.
