S5W-10759: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 15 August 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-08730 by Humza Yousaf on 26 April 2017, what cycle capacity will be specified for the high-speed trains entering service with ScotRail in 2018.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 6 September 2017

Discussions to increase overall cycle capacity from 10 are nearing conclusion. This represents an increase of 500% more bookable space between Glasgow/Edinburgh and Inverness. We will continue to work closely with ScotRail, and cycling organisations to explore opportunities to increase cycle provision on HST’s while considering the needs of other passengers.
