ScotRail has confirmed that it will extend the use of late-night services, following a review of the temporary timetable.

The train company has recently struck a deal with a trade union which could see the end of the pay dispute with its drivers, which sees a temporary timetable in place across the country.

Aslef, the drivers' union, agreed to accept a 5 per cent pay rise for its members after negotiations with ScotRail bosses.

The union had previously threatened strike action after rejecting a 4.2% per cent rise.

And on May 28, following feedback from customers, local businesses, and others, ScotRail introduced additional late evening services on Friday and Saturday nights.


The train operator has now confirmed that from Monday, June 13, it will extend these additional services to include Monday-Thursday, meaning they will now operate Monday-Saturday.

The additional services will be included in the Glasgow Central to Ayr line.

David Simpson, ScotRail Service Delivery Director, said: “While running a temporary timetable is frustrating, it’s encouraging that we have made progress with driver pay talks, and I’m pleased we can extend the use of late-night services for customers.

"We have listened to the feedback from customers and businesses and have acted.

“The temporary timetable is providing customers with greater certainty and reliability as we seek to reach agreement with ASLEF.”

Customers will be able to find the details of these services on the ScotRail app and at from Friday, June 10.
