To ask the Scottish Government for how many of the trains between Edinburgh in Glasgow that have have been cancelled in 2018 was an alternative public transport method offered.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 13 June 2018

The Scottish Government does not hold this information. However, Schedule 1.2 para. 8.3 of the Franchise Agreement requires ScotRail “to use all reasonable endeavours to secure the provision of alternative transport arrangements and passage on such alternative transport arrangements to enable passengers affected by such disruption to complete their intended journeys”.

During times of disruption, ScotRail will also enable ticket acceptance with local and regional bus operators.
