Peak Time Rail Fares Scrapped

From today, peak-time train tickets have been scrapped on all ScotRail services for a 6-month pilot.

The SNP Government-funded project, encouraging people to travel by rail instead of car, will allow customers to travel all day on off-peak fares until the end of March 2024.

The trial will see massive savings across the country, with fares on the main route between Edinburgh and Glasgow plummeting from £28.90 to £14.90.

It is hoped that the trial will encourage more people to use ScotRail services, with cheaper fares early in the day attracting more passengers.

The ambitious project, which is a first of its kind in the UK rail industry, will support the SNP Government’s ambition to achieve net zero, providing more people with the opportunity to use trains as their primary form of transport.
