Rumbles: Public scrutiny necessary on Scotrail improvement plan


After yesterday’s ScotRail chaos, Scottish Liberal Democrat transport spokesperson, Mike Rumbles MSP met with the company to explore the publication of their ScotRail Improvement plan. 

Today Mr Rumbles said: 

“What passengers want is sustained improvement not just a one day wonder in front of the cameras.

“ScotRail performance is an issue the Scottish Government needs to take seriously. 

“We have to make sure that real change and improvement happens not just PR glitz. 

“I have doubts about whether the Transport Minister has fully immersed himself in this before this week. 

“I met ScotRail yesterday and I am exploring with them how their full improvement plan can be given public scrutiny rather than just the limited summary that the Scottish Government has released. 

“With the full plan available, commuters will know if their concerns are going to be addressed and not just smoothed over.”
