ScotRail – The Journey So Far

Posted: 16th March 2016

ScotRail has produced a special update on the first year of Abellio’s stewardship of Scotland’s Railway.

“The journey so far” has been distributed to customers across the seven cities.

Highlights include committing £475m towards the largest ever train improvement programme for Scotland’s railway and entering an industry leading deep Alliance with Network Rail to form the ScotRail Alliance, a joined up railway focused on the needs of the customer.

The special update provides information on a range of improvements, from ticket and discount options to upgraded stations, showcasing Scotland and promoting tourism. There is also a look ahead … ranging from delivering new and refurbished trains, more carriages, more seats and shorter journey times to smarter ticketing and enhanced intercity services.
