ScotRail has been fined almost half a million pounds for failing
to meet required standards for trains and stations.
The inspection results follow criticism of the franchise
over delayed, cancelled and over-crowded trains.
Here's our Transport Correspondent David Henderson.
Well, this is another wrap across the knuckles for ScotRail. They are
already under pressure to improve their targets, for things like
reducing the number of trains that are late, reducing levels of
overcrowding on the trains. But they also assessed on soft performance
targets. Inspectors travel on the trains, go to the stations and ask
the core questions, like RB train announcements clear enough on what
is the service from staff like, are the toilets clean enough? It seems
they have failed on a number of those fronts, to put up during July
to September, targets were not met in five out of 17 areas of station
performance and ScotRail also missed ten out of 17 benchmarks on the
train. The end result is they have been hit by an enormous fine, almost
half ?1 million, which will be reinvested in the rail network but
which will hit ScotRail's profits. Some reaction tonight from the
Scottish Government to say that further improvements will be
required. They have asked transport Scotland to ask ScotRail to set out
in detail how it plans to improve performance. As far as ScotRail is
concerned, they say they will never stop striving to deliver they are
investing almost half ?1 billion in new trains and refurbished trains
and on better Wi-Fi to improve the passenger experience. They will now
know it is day-to-day services which have to improve fast.

We will apply for the order and it will probably take several days.
