If re-elected the SNP will take over the running of Scotland’s rail franchise.

ScotRail services would move into public sector control when the current franchise with Abellio expires – expected to happen in March 2022.

Commenting SNP Ruth Maguire for Cunninghame South said:

“This bold move by the SNP will bring stability and certainty to those who use our railway for work and leisure, both in North Ayrshire and across the country and will ensure Scotland’s rail users are provided with the well-run and reliable and service we rightly expect.

The SNP have long argued that the future structure of Scottish railways should be in Scotland’s hands.

If you agree, make it #BothVotesSNP on 6th May.”
