S5W-13272: Mike Rumbles (North East Scotland)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 11 December 2017

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. 

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 3 January 2018

With respect to the number of passenger journeys in each year (2015-16; 2016-17) under the current ScotRail franchise, this information is available on-line, at the ORR Data Portal.

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.
