Abellio ScotRail is currently consulting on a proposed timetable from May 2022 which will lead to 100,000 fewer annual services. I believe this will be devastating for passengers across the country and flies in the face of the Scottish Government’s stated ambition to get more people using public transport.
An RMT survey of 400 ScotRail workers yesterday found 96% believe the cuts will impact passengers negatively, 89% believe the cuts will deter passengers from the rail network, and 97% believe the cuts will be used to justify job cuts in the future.
It is not too late to have your say on this. The consultation is short and easy to fill in. It closes tomorrow and is available at this link: https://scotrail.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3KwfSqA3x27QKRU
