ScotRail passengers urged to plan ahead as timetable changes

ScotRail will introduce changes to services from Sunday May 21.

As part of this, the ‘fast trains’ between Glasgow Central and Gourock which operate outwith peak times will be removed.

ScotRail says this will assist its efforts to ‘reliably operate’ a core service in Inverclyde of three trains per hour during the day, with additional fast trains during peak.

The rail operator said it is now designing new future timetables for services in Inverclyde to help grow passenger numbers.

These plans are to be shared with customers and stakeholders in the coming months, with feedback being used to shape the proposals.

Changes are also being made to timetables on routes linking Glasgow with Edinburgh and Ayrshire.

David Simpson, ScotRail service delivery director, said: “Our new timetable is another step forward for Scotland’s Railway, as we continue to recover from the impact of the pandemic.

“The way people travel has dramatically changed in the past two years, and we are doing everything we can to provide them with the best possible service.

“Increasing the frequency of trains between Edinburgh and Glasgow is a major milestone on the road to recovery, and we have essentially introduced entirely new timetables between Ayrshire and Glasgow, and Inverclyde and Glasgow.

“There is a lot of investment in Scotland’s Railway, with decarbonisation continuing and improvements across the network, and this new timetable is an important part of that.”
