Railway and bus stations, shops and some war memorials were getting ready for a two-minute silence to honour their sacrifice.
The Royal British Legion planned a ceremony at the Garden of Remembrance in George Square. Central Station was due to come to a halt at 11am, with no loudspeaker announcements and no trains moving in or out of the station.
And a Salvation Army band was due to play as Royal British Legion standard bearers and veterans walked across the concourse to the Gordon Street entrance, where a war memorial is situated, for a short service was tconducted by railway mission chaplain Steven Black
The tributes came as details were released of how Glasgow will mark Remembrance Sunday at the Cenotaph at George Square.
The service is able to go ahead after previously being in doubt because of the anti-capitalism demonstration in the Square. The protesters have moved to Kelvingrove Park.
