The current Bathgate station opened in 2010 with the extension of the Edinburgh to Bathgate line, adding a fourth cross-country route between the Scottish capital and Glasgow. The new station stands to the south of the town next to Bathgate Golf Club, and has a number of bus stops for onward connections. Trains to Bathgate travel between Edinburgh Waverley and Glasgow Queen Street, and onwards to Helensburgh Central or Milngavie. Shopping and services in the town are focused on a triangle formed by North Bridge Street, South Bridge Street, and the pedestrianised George Street. The town centre is about half a mile from the railway station, and a few miles north of the town is Cairnpipple Hill, a Neolithic burial site with commanding views across the surrounding countryside. The visitor centre is open during the summer, and can be reached via bus from Bathgate to Torphichen, followed by a fifteen-minute walk through countryside.
