Exhibition Centre and Bathgate introduce ticket gates

Monday, 15 February 2016

Exhibition Centre and Bathgate will become the latest ScotRail stations to introduce ticket gates, set to go live in March 2016.

Work to install the gates at the stations started in February, and the majority of work is taking place overnight - causing minimal impact on customers travelling through the station during the day.

The gates are being introduced as part of ScotRail’s commitment to reduce ticketless travel, increase revenue protection, improve station security and discourage anti-social behaviour.

Automatic ticket gates have already been installed at a number of our stations, including Perth, Inverness, Aberdeen, Dundee, Stirling, Glasgow Queen Street and Central stations, and Edinburgh Waverley and Haymarket.

When the gates become operational, customers are encouraged to buy their tickets in advance of travel to allow quick and easy access to and from the stations.

Extra staff will be on-hand at the stations to assist customers when the gates are in use.
