The train operator said it was adding extra carriages to more than 600 trains to help supporters travelling to the Capital for the three matches – Scotland v Japan on Saturday, Scotland v South Africa on 17 November and Scotland v Australia on 23 November.
Furthermore, it will have at least 40 extra staff on the ground at each game to assist customers.
But ScotRail advised that services will still be busy – particularly if most spectators head for Haymarket immediately after the final whistle.
Queuing systems will be in place at Glasgow Queen Street before the games, and at Haymarket after, to help safely guide customers to next available trains.
ScotRail urged fans to help their journeys run smoothly by:
Buying tickets in advance
Allowing extra time for travel
Noting that drinking or carrying alcohol is banned on rugby trains, to help everyone safely enjoy the day.
ScotRail has worked with partners including the Scottish Rugby Union, City of Edinburgh Council and police to help fans enjoy the days.
A ScotRail spokeswoman said: “We are pleased to be able to offer more seats for fans travelling to the games, while also meeting demand in other areas of the rail network.
“Fans can play their part by buying tickets in advance and allowing extra time for travel.”
