Seat reservations

Scotland’s Railway is playing a critical role help our country emerge from the Coronavirus pandemic – providing transport for key workers such as NHS staff, emergency workers and carers.

The Government has made it clear that public transport remains for necessary journeys, to allow our staff and passengers to maintain a safe physical distance from each other. Please don’t travel if your journey isn’t a necessary one, and consider an alternative way of getting to where you need to be.

While we continue to move through the various stages of lockdown restrictions easing, ScotRail is not able to offer customers an allocated seat on reservable services.

This is only a temporary measure and we plan to reintroduce allocated seats as soon as we can do so safely. In the meantime, we are asking customers to take personal responsibility and maintain a safe physical distance from each other when making necessary journeys.

This page will be updated as we reintroduce allocated seats on our Intercity, rural and scenic routes in the coming weeks.
