View original 2/3 of Scottish rail users want ScotRail nationalised

The Times has reported a YouGov survey which finds 64% of Scottish rail passengers are open to ScotRail being nationalised. The findings follow persistent complaints of delays, cancellations and overcrowding by passengers. The poll also finds 11% of respondents wished the train service to remain in private hands, with 25% of respondents unsure of a future direction for the franchise. The Times reports the SNP’s current policy is for public sector bids for rail franchises in Scotland to take place.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
