Passengers enduring terrible trains

Commenting on ScotRail receiving record fines of £3million, Scottish Liberal Democrat transport spokesperson Mike Rumbles MSP said:

"Far too often, passengers are enduring trains that are late, standing room only, have been stripped of carriages, lacking heating or skipping stops.

"Last year the Scottish Government used the money from fines for a sweetener for pass holders, when it was supposed to be used to improve infrastructure and services.

"This year they should know that passengers don't want token gestures, they want to get home on time and for their train to have the basics they expect."
