The trial which has seen the removal of peak time fares being removed from ScotRail has been a huge success. It helps with commutes to work, getting out and about, visits to family and much more. It has also helped make journeys across Scotland more affordable for constituents. So when rail travel elsewhere in Scotland was raised in Parliament, I sought to make just that point. For those that can, I would encourage constituents to use our rail network to see what Scotland has to offer.

It is welcome news that passengers have, on average, seen a saving of 20% on travel costs.

I know the Scottish Government is reviewing the success of this trial, and I look forward to finding out if this can be supported further.
