The ScotRail Peak Fares Removal Pilot Set to Run from 2 October 2023 to 29 March 2024
In an update to Parliament, the Minister confirmed dates for the pilot which forms a key part of the transport commitments in its recently published Programme for Government.
During the pilot, all off-peak fares and products that are set and controlled by ScotRail will be valid for travel all day.
This pilot will come as welcome news for families as the October school holidays approach. Together with the ScotRail ‘Kids for a Quid’ offer, there will be significant savings available for day trips.
The Scottish Government will carefully consider the impact of the pilot and the long-term sustainability of such a proposition before committing to any reinstatement of the pilot after 29 March 2024.
