Physical distancing will still have to be maintained, even during peak hours with some seats remaining empty.

Scotrail are restarting more services ahead of the schools reopening on August 11.

They are not yet able to put on 100% of services as due to physical distancing it is impossible for two people to sit in the driver’s cab.

David Simpson, ScotRail Operations Director, said “Thanks to the hard work of staff across Scotland’s Railway, we’ll operate as close to a normal timetable as possible from Monday, 3 August.

“Like businesses across the world, we continue to face challenges caused by coronavirus, but we will have every available train in service from 3 August.

“We do need everybody to continue taking personal responsibility for their travel choices, because physical distancing can’t be guaranteed.

“Customers who do travel with ScotRail should follow our five rules for safer travel, including the wearing of a face covering on trains and at stations.”
