We’re pleased to reintroduce our normal timetable. It brings an end to the temporary timetable that has been in place since 23 May and means almost 700 services per day have been added for customers.
It has been a very challenging few weeks, impacting on our staff, and those of you across the country who rely on rail travel.
We've been relying on drivers working overtime or on their rest days to run a normal timetable, as the pandemic meant that training new drivers was significantly delayed. Without COVID and that impact on training, we would have trained around an extra 130 drivers today.
On Monday, 11 July, drivers’ union ASLEF confirmed that its members had voted to accept an improved pay offer made by ScotRail.
Our train planning team have worked flat out to carry out the changes required for the near 700 services to be reintroduced. This includes scheduling the movement of trains to where they need to be, with rosters for on-train staff and schedules for drivers being altered.
If you’re planning to travel, please see our normal timetables.
