SEVEN more trains a day will be stopping off at Dunfermline next month when a new ScotRail timetable is introduced.

The train operator say the new schedule will see improvements across the country, helping to ensure that rail remains one of the easiest and sustainable ways to travel.

As reported previously by the Press, the changes – which will be implemented on June 2 – will see seven additional services for Dunfermline every day with commuters seeing eight per cent more seats from Fife to Edinburgh in the morning peak and an increase of 12 per cent from Edinburgh to Fife in the evening peak.

As a result, the number of seats provided between Fife and Edinburgh per day will rise from 16,000 to 19,000 in each direction.

Scott Prentice, ScotRail Strategic Planning Director, said:  “This is a fantastic timetable change for our customers, delivering improvements across the country, including almost 100 additional services each day and thousands of extra seats.

“Public consultations play an active part in helping to decide what our future timetables look like, and we continue to do everything we can to look at ways of making rail an even more attractive mode of transport.

“It is an exciting time for Scotland’s Railway with the historic reopening of Levenmouth, passenger numbers continuing to grow, and significant investment in recruitment across the business.

“Everyone at ScotRail is working hard to deliver a safe, reliable, and sustainable rail service that provides a positive experience for our customers.”
