ScotRail expands Sunday service

Listen to this article

ScotRail is to launch a new half-hourly Sunday service on its Edinburgh to Glasgow via Falkirk route.

From September 9, a dozen more trains will be put into service, adding more than 2,250 extra seats.

The expansion of services means there will be trains on the hour and half past the hour in both directions on Sundays for the first time in the line’s 170-year history.

Steve Montgomery, ScotRail’s managing director, said: “We recognise that people’s travelling patterns continue to change and these new, more frequent services offer even more opportunities for people to make the switch to rail, delivering environmental and economic benefits for Scotland.”

Transport Minister Keith Brown said: “I am delighted to welcome ScotRail’s announcement of a record number of Sunday services on this key route.

“The shift from road to rail travel is hugely important in meeting the ambitious climate change targets set by the Scottish Government.”

  1. Is this the full story? I travelled on the line on Sunday and it was a half- hourly service. Six coaches and jammed.

    Might it be an extension of hours they’re announcing?
