The new displays are part of ongoing investment to improve Scotland’s stations. Last month 100 new electric car charging spaces, and over 40 new station shelters were announced by the ScotRail Alliance.

Ian McConnell, the ScotRail Alliance’s programmes and transformation director, said: “We’re working hard to improve and renew stations across our network. Customer information is hugely important, and the more detail – the better.

“Our aim has always been to make to support environmentally-friendly travel across Scotland, well beyond the end of the railway tracks.”
