FirstGroup has been operating the ScotRail franchise since 2004. Eight years on, we remain resolute in our aim to deliver a leaner and more reliable railway over the next two years and beyond.
We believe we are much more than a railway operator and have a significant part to play in improving the fabric of Scottish society – by connecting communities, contributing to sustainable economic growth, safeguarding Scotland’s environment, getting more people to use trains, and creating quality job and training opportunities.
As a ‘can do organisation’ which is innovative and responsive to customer needs, our commitment has already led to record numbers of services – more than 2,300 a day; growth in passenger numbers – at a record high of 81.1 million a year; delivery of better facilities at stations and on trains; and more jobs, which are up 30%.
