Croy railway station serves the village of Croy – as well as the nearby town of Kilsyth and parts of Cumbernauld – in North Lanarkshire, Scotland. Located on the Glasgow to Edinburgh via Falkirk Line, 11 1⁄2 miles (18.5 km) northeast of Glasgow Queen Street. It is served by services on the Glasgow–Edinburgh mainline and services between Glasgow Queen Street and Stirling. Train services are provided by Abellio ScotRail.
The station has park-and-ride facilities, with spaces for over 900 vehicles. There are bus connections to Kilsyth and Cumbernauld. The lines through the station are currently (summer 2016) being electrified as part of the Edinburgh to Glasgow Improvement Programme. Platform lengthening work here is being carried out as part of this scheme, which will see E&G trains becoming electrically operated by December 2016 and those to Dunblane & Alloa by 2018.
Monday to Saturdays, there is a half-hourly service southbound to Glasgow Queen Street and northbound to Edinburgh. The service is hourly in each direction on evenings and Sundays.
There is also a half-hourly service to Stirling Monday to Saturday, which continues alternately to Alloa or Dunblane. This provides a second half-hourly service to Glasgow calling at both Lenzie and Bishopbriggs, giving a combined four trains an hour to Glasgow off peak. On Sundays, an hourly service operates between Glasgow and Alloa.
