ScotRail

ScotRail is providing an emergency rail service as part of the national effort to deal with the current public health crisis.

As part of an industry-wide response, we are running a reduced service for essential journeys, for key workers such as NHS staff, emergency workers and carers.

The government has made it clear that public transport is for essential use only, so that key workers and our staff can practise social distancing and be safe on their journeys. If you are not one of these workers and your journey is not essential, please do not travel.

Passengers can claim ticket refunds on advance tickets or unused season tickets, and we ask for your patience while our customer teams work hard to meet demand.

Stagecoach

We want to reassure you that, we’re still running our revised services and we are continuing to take our lead from the latest government guidelines. For those with an essential need to travel, there are some things we can all do to help keep everyone safe, including practising social distancing by sitting on your own wherever possible, using contactless payment if you can and taking your newspaper home with you. Please check service updates for up to date information or see our Coronavirus page
