Yoker (Scottish Gaelic: An Eochair) is a district of Glasgow, Scotland, on the northern bank of the Clyde east of Clydebank, 5 miles (8 kilometres) west of the city centre. From the fourteenth century, a ferry has linked Yoker with Renfrew on the south bank. Although shipbuilding has declined, the Yarrows shipyard, now owned by BAE Systems, is still in operation.
Motor vehicles and tramcars were also manufactured in Yoker, which is now an operations centre for the North Clyde Line, part of Glasgow’s suburban rail network. Yoker railway station has services on the Argyle and North Clyde lines.
From 2006, there has been substantial investment in residential property in the area, due to the popularity of its location on the banks of the Clyde.
