Publication Date: 
Publication Summary: 
We asked rail users and stakeholders to play a part in shaping Scotland's rail services public consultation.

In 2014, both the current contract for rail passenger services (ScotRail) and the funding arrangements for Network Rail in Scotland are due to come to an end and new arrangements have to be in place. This consultation is a crucial part of our considerations.

Please note: The consultation is now closed.

There will be a number of rail station events throughout the consultation. Promotional postcards are being distributed at the station events throughout the consultation.

Fact sheets are available with more information on stations and cross-border services.
