To ask the Scottish Government how many passenger journeys there have been each year under the current ScotRail franchise, and what the estimated figure is for 2017-18.

While the Scottish Government has sighted estimates for patronage within ScotRail’s Business Plan for 2017-18, this information is classified as commercially confidential, until the final patronage figures are confirmed and published. We would expect the patronage result for 2017-18 to be published in mid-2018.
