Proud to be on board as a Commonwealth Games Sponsor
As Scotland's national railway, we're proud to announce that ScotRail has become the latest addition to the Games Sponsor Family.
We want the Games to be the best they can be. As Official Supporter of Passenger Rail Services we’ll deliver an enhanced Games timetable of high frequency services on key routes across the city, to make sure spectators get to where they need to be smoothly and on time. We’ll also provide increased capacity on long-distance trains linking Glasgow with other parts of Scotland – and extra late night trains where possible.
The full timetable is set to be announced this Spring and we are expecting to deliver more than one million passenger journeys over the 11 days of the Games. Transport on ScotRail services within designated Glasgow city boundaries will be included in the price of the Games ticket for Glasgow 2014 spectators.
Our staff are getting Game ready too. More than 3,000 staff are already undergoing specialist ‘World Host’ customer service training ahead of the Games to guarantee a world-class welcome to those visiting both Glasgow and Scotland this summer.
Welcoming ScotRail to the Sponsor Family as an Official Supporter, Glasgow 2014’s Chief Executive, David Grevemberg, said:
“We warmly welcome ScotRail to the Glasgow 2014 Sponsor Family. I’m sure together we can deliver an outstanding Games experience that everyone can enjoy.”
Tim O’Toole, chief executive of FirstGroup, which runs ScotRail, said:
“We are proud of our Scottish heritage and the important role we play connecting people and communities up and down Scotland, every day.
The Commonwealth Games, falling in the Year of Homecoming, provides an important opportunity for Scotland to promote itself around the world, and we look forward to playing our part, moving people around Glasgow and Scotland as quickly and efficiently as we can.”
Glasgow 2014 is a once-in-a-lifetime occasion. And, as Scotland’s national railway, we’re proud to be part of this exciting and historic event.
