ScotRail has introduced a revised timetable in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic.

The timetable that will operate for customers represents significant change from the normal daily timetable, with a specific focus to deliver an effective public transport service for key workers.

It came into play on Monday of this week.

Reducing the number of trains in service creates opportunities for additional cleaning activities on trains, and in depots, and allows more targeted cleaning at stations.

Glasgow Central - Ardrossan / Largs

Trains will run on a reduced timetable.

The first train from Largs to Glasgow Central will depart at 6.42am while the first train from Ardrossan Harbour to Glasgow Central will be at 9.36am.

Trains leaving Glasgow Central to Largs will start at 7.15am while the first train to depart Glasgow to Ardrossan Harbour will be at 8.33am.

The last trains are 7.45pm from Glasgow Central to Largs and 7.54pm from Largs to Glasgow.

Ayr – Glasgow

Trains will run on a half hourly service between Ayr and Glasgow.

The first train departing from Ayr will be at 6:33am while the first Glasgow Central to Ayr service will depart at 7.46am.

The final trains of the evening will be 9.45pm from Ayr to Glasgow Central and 10pm from Glasgow.

David Simpson, ScotRail Operations Director, said: “We are facing an unprecedented challenge on Scotland’s Railway and the revised timetable will help to provide a critical service for the key workers across the country.

“Our own people are absolutely committed and are working flat out on the frontline to help keep the country moving, while also keeping themselves and customers safe.

“The railway has an important role to play during this crisis and we will work closely with the Scottish Government to do all we can as the situation develops.”
