ScotRail have announced that they are taking away one of their peak fares for a new train service.

Their new timetable launches tomorrow morning.

A ScotRail spokesman said: "We will designate the new 0807 Largs to Glasgow service as off-peak to those travelling from Largs, Fairlie and West Kilbride.

"This means that both commuters and leisure travellers can now arrive in Glasgow for 9.15 on a great value off peak return."

It comes after concerns were aired over the axeing of the 7.42am train from Largs to Glasgow affecting commuters, with the matter even being aired in the Scottish Parliament last week. Instead, this service will now start at Ardrossan.

The Scottish Government have signalled that all peak train fares will be halted for a six month period later this year.

First Minister Humza Yousaf said: I want to make Scotland’s public transport system more accessible, I want to make it more available and I want to make it more affordable. That is why I confirmed last month that the six-month pilot to remove peak-time fares from ScotRail services will start in October. That intervention, which is unprecedented in the UK rail sector, will enable officials to gather evidence across transport modes for the fair fares review and will inform future proposals while, importantly, encouraging modal shift."
