ScotRail Emergency Timetable Now in Operation

A new ScotRail timetable is now in operation just 2 weeks after the summer timetable was introduced which included some increases.

ScotRail Said:

We're aware how much recent disruption has been affecting our customers and believe introducing a temporary timetable will provide greater certainty and reliability for those travelling.

We've been relying on drivers working overtime or on their rest days to run a normal timetable, as the pandemic meant that training new drivers was significantly delayed. Without COVID and that impact on training, we would have trained around an extra 130 drivers today.

Following an announcement by the drivers’ union ASLEF that it will ballot for industrial action over pay, a significant number of drivers have been declining to make themselves available for overtime or rest day working. This has resulted in the recent disruption and our need to introduce a temporary timetable going forward.

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.

In the meantime, we’re asking customers to check your journey as your train times may have changed.

See our temporary timetables below, which cover Mondays to Fridays. We are currently working on temporary timetables for Saturdays, which will be broadly similar as Mon-Fri, and for Sundays as well. We’ll update customers in the coming days.

These timetables will be updated on Journey Planner and the ScotRail App in the coming days. You can also follow us on Twitter to keep updated on the latest changes.

The new timetables can be found below:
