Yoker railway station is an unstaffed station which serves the district of Yoker in Scotland. The station is in Clydebank in West Dunbartonshire but it is very near the boundary with Glasgow.

Access can be gained from either side of the station, or onto the footbridge that is directly connected to the overpass.

The station is served by First ScotRail as part of the SPT network. It is located on the Argyle Line and the North Clyde Line.

It is the nearest railway station to the Renfrew Ferry on the north side of the River Clyde.

The large Yoker Traction Maintenance Depot, which looks after the EMU fleet used on North Clyde suburban services, is located a short distance to the south (between here and Garscadden). Yoker IECC is also nearby - this has controlled the signalling on the entire North Clyde network since 1989.

Services[edit]

There is a basic weekdays & Saturday daytime service of 4tph (every 15 minutes) in each direction, northbound to Dalmuir via Clydebank and southbound to Partick. From here alternate services run via Queen Street Low Level to Springburn and via Central Low Level to Motherwell via Bellshill (2tph to each route). Every second Motherwell service extends to Lanark.

In the evenings & all day Sunday, there is a half-hourly service in operation - evening trains run between Helensburgh Central and Edinburgh Waverley via Queen St & Airdrie and Sunday trains between Balloch & Motherwell.
