The Glasgow Airport Rail Link (GARL) was a proposed rail link during the 2000s to directly link Glasgow Central station with Glasgow International Airport in Scotland. The link was intended for completion by 2013 and would have had a service of four trains per hour via Paisley Gilmour Street railway station.
On 17 September 2009 the rail link was cancelled as part of public spending cuts.
