NITE ZONE Safer Transport Initiative

Glasgow’s Nite Zones are designed to get people home quickly and safely from a night out in the city centre.

The Nite Zone initiative is led by Glasgow Community and Safety Services and run in partnership with Glasgow City Council, Strathclyde Police, Glasgow Taxis Ltd and FirstGroup.

There are two Nite Zones in operation in the city centre – in Gordon Street and Sauchiehall Street – and these areas benefit from enhanced public street lighting, additional CCTV cameras, public help points, and taxi and bus marshalls who look after queues for transport at night. Initially established in Gordon Street in December 2005 the project was extended to Sauchiehall Street in June 2006 and also operates in Byres Road over the festive periods.

More than 1.5 million people from Glasgow and beyond have gone through the Nite Zone since the project began. Nite Zones have contributed to lower crime rates, quicker dispersal of users of the night time economy, reduction of queue jumping and spontaneous violence and also a cleaner environment.
