Scottish National Party

Date lodged: 21 September 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what progress it has made with the installation of cycling facilities at railway stations (a) nationally and (b) on the Aberdeen to Inverness line.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 4 October 2017

My officials at Transport Scotland engage regularly with ScotRail on progress being made to install cycle parking facilities at railway stations. Since the franchise commenced in April 2015 nearly 1,300 additional cycle parking spaces have been rolled out at 44 stations, including Elgin and Inverurie on the Aberdeen to Inverness line. Proposals are currently being developed for additional cycle parking facilities at Dyce, Aberdeen and Inverness station.

ScotRail has also rolled out the Bike and Go hire scheme at 12 stations including at Aberdeen and Inverness station.
