  • Scotrail's 'Fit for the Future' public consultation

    Created: 01/09/2021

    Scotrail is unveiling plans for the new timetable from May 2022, showing that it is ‘Fit For The Future’. It’s part of a public consultation as customers return to using Scotland’s Railway.

    ScotRail has reviewed the timetable across the whole network to ensure the service meets the needs of customers and the Scottish Government’s aims as Scotland recovers from the pandemic and in the future.

    The consultation will be open until 01 October 2021 to seek opinions on the proposed timetables from the public.

    Further details are available here.

    ScotRail is proposing that the May 2022 timetable will introduce a new timetable between Edinburgh, Fife, Perth and Dundee with the following services:

    • One train per hour between Edinburgh and Dundee calling at all stations via Kirkcaldy;
    • One train per hour between Edinburgh and Perth calling at all stations via Dunfermline;
    • One train per hour between Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy calling at all stations via Kinghorn. These services can be extended to Leven when the Levenmouth branch reopens; and
    • One train per hour between Edinburgh and Glenrothes with Thornton calling at all stations via Dunfermline. These services can be extended to Leven when the Levenmouth branch reopens.

    Additional peak capacity will be provided between Edinburgh and Glenrothes with Thornton via both Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline.

    Through services between Fife and Tweedbank will be discontinued, and passengers will have to change trains at Edinburgh Waverley.

    The evening timetable will provide one train per hour to Dundee and one train per hour to Kirkcaldy.

    The timetable will offer better connectivity between Dundee and stations in Fife, Perth and stations in Fife, and between stations within Fife. The journey time for some passengers between Perth and Edinburgh will increase, however, there will be frequent journey opportunities available via a change of trains at Stirling.
