ScotRail has announced that its train fares will be off-peak all day, every day until 28 June 2024.

The trial, which is funded by the Scottish Government and launched on 2 October 2023, aims to make public transport more accessible and affordable, and encourage people to travel by train instead of car.

Customers can travel at any time of the day on off-peak tickets and enjoy significant savings. For example, train tickets for travel during traditional peak times between Edinburgh and Glasgow have dropped from £28.90 to £14.90.

Examples of some of the other savings on routes in and out of the main cities include:

  • Inverkeithing – Edinburgh £11.10 to £6.50
  • Perth – Dundee £14.40 to £9.90
  • Glasgow – Stirling £16.10 to £9.60
  • Inverurie – Aberdeen £11.10 to £8.90
  • Inverness – Elgin £22.00 to £14.40

The project, which is a first of its kind in the UK rail industry, will support the Scottish Government’s ambition to achieve net zero, providing more people with the opportunity to use trains as their primary form of transport.
