ScotRail has been operating a revised timetable throughout the COVID-19 outbreak to allow doctors, nurses, care workers, and others to travel safely.

Figures between May 31 and June 27 show that 95.4 per cent of ScotRail trains met the rail industry punctuality standard.

During this period, there was a further increase to that timetable on Monday, 15 June, with 60 per cent of a normal timetable in operation, and 70 per cent of the normal seating provided.

The train operator urge anyone travelling to follow the mandatory face covering guidance, and to avoid travelling at peak commuting times.

The rail company also urge customers to be patient as you might not be able to board your first choice of train, as physical distancing means most seats need to be left empty.

David Simpson, operations director, said: “As we move toward the further easing of restrictions, we again urge our customers to take personal responsibility, consider alternative transport options, and make sure our services are available for those who have no other option.”
