TOC(s) affected

ScotRail are currently operating a temporary timetable, so customers will have greater certainty and confidence in the advertised service. This follows recent disruption that had been affecting ScotRail customers.

Please check your journey before you travel as your train times may have changed.

Alterations to the timetable: 

You can find the temporary timetables here.

Why are ScotRail operating a reduced timetable?

ScotRail have 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, ScotRail would have trained around an extra 130 drivers.

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 the need to introduce a temporary timetable going forward.

Check before you travel:

Monday to Saturday - you can check your journey using the National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner.

Sunday -  For journeys on Sundays from Sunday 10 July, please check back nearer to the time of travel as the journey planner is not yet reflecting the reduced timetable.
