Make ScotRail Public

Five years ago today, Abellio – the company owned by the Dutch government – took over running Scotlandโ€™s Railway. After years of poor service, on 18 December 2019, the Scottish Minister for Transport Michael Matheson MSP, finally announced that he would break Abellio’s contract three yearsโ€™ early (on 31 March 2022).

On 1 April 2020, we re-launched the Make ScotRail Public campaign in collaboration with our friends at Get Glasgow Moving, TSSA and We Own It, to demand that a public sector operator is ready to take over running ScotRail services by 2022.
