Hundreds of ScotRail services are set to be cut from pre-pandemic levels.

It comes after a consultation by the rail operator over its future timetable development.

However, the figure is below the 2400 daily services that were in operation before the pandemic.

Unions, including the RMT, have raised concerns that the cuts could have a particular impact on some of the most vulnerable railway users, including those with disabilities.

And the RMT has taken aim at Transport Scotland and the Scottish Government in enabling Abellio to make the changes ahead of the franchise being nationalised next month.

Mick Hogg, RMT regional organiser, told STV News that the move was “deliberate and calculated”, as he hit out at the “absolutely disgraceful” cuts.
