Question ref. S6W-05859
Asked by: Alex Rowley, Mid Scotland and Fife, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 21 January 2022

Question

To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on whether reducing 300 rail services from pre-pandemic levels will increase or decrease rail passenger numbers.

Current status: Answered by Jenny Gilruth on 9 February 2022


Answer

ScotRail’s May 2022 timetable, benefiting from careful consideration of the consultation feedback, is significantly better than the May 2021 timetable, with 150 more services per day. The aim is to build weekday passenger capacity to more than 590,000 seats, ensuring ScotRail Trains Ltd operate a more sustainable and more robust financial footing.
