To ask the Scottish Government (a) how many and (b) what percentage of train (i) routes run by ScotRail and (ii) stations have wifi available.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 27 October 2016

Currently just under 50% of the ScotRail train fleet has wifi fitted on train. The train fleet serve inter-city routes, Ayrshire, Inverclyde, Renfrewshire, North Berwick/ Dunbar, Central Scotland, Fife and Far North routes.

There are 59 stations with wifi available from 358 stations which equates to around 16%. Stations with wifi available include a mix of busy stations, interchange and key stations.
