Scotrail Introduce Temporary Timetable as Significant Disruption Expected

ScotRail cuts back January train timetable amid Covid staff absences

From Monday 23rd or May, ScotRail will be introducing a temporary timetable to provide greater certainty and reliability for customers.

The need for a temporary timetable has come as a significant number of drivers are declining to make themselves available for overtime or rest day working, flowing an announcement by the drivers’ union ASLEF that it will ballot for industrial action over pay.

Speaking about the introduction of the timetable David Simpson, ScotRail Service Delivery Director, said: “We are very sorry to customers for the disruption of recent days. We know what customers want more than anything is certainty and reliability, which is why we are introducing a temporary timetable.

“We want to resolve this dispute with the trade unions and move forward together to provide the safest, greenest, and most reliable railway we can for Scotland. We remain open to further talks with the trade unions.

“We’re asking customers to check their journey on our website, mobile app, and through our social media channels as train times will have changed.”

The temporary timetable for Monday to Friday can be viewed online at https://www.scotrail.co.uk/timetable-update.

A timetable for Saturday and Sunday currently being worked on. The timetable for Saturday will be broadly similar to the Monday to Friday one, and customers will be updated on these in the coming days.
