Timetable Update

Last updated: Sunday 26 June 2022

We're aware how much recent disruption has been affecting our customers and believe a temporary timetable will provide greater certainty and reliability for those travelling.

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.

Following an announcement by the drivers’ union ASLEF that it will ballot for industrial action over pay, a significant number of drivers have been declining to make themselves available for overtime or rest day working. This has resulted in the recent disruption and our need to introduce a temporary timetable going forward.

While running a temporary timetable is frustrating, it’s encouraging that we have made progress in the pay talks with the drivers’ union ASLEF having said it will recommend putting the offer to a referendum of its members and recommend acceptance of the offer itself.

In the meantime, we’re asking customers to check your journey as your train times may have changed.

See our temporary timetables below, which cover Mondays to Saturdays. You can also check Journey Planner or the ScotRail App, and you can also follow us on Twitter to keep updated on the latest changes.
