ScotRail – Rail Awareness Open Day

Written on: 7th February, 2017. Written by: James Davidson.

ScotRail would like to take this opportunity to advise you that the next Rail Awareness Open Day (the first of 2017) is confirmed for Glasgow Central on 29 March from 1230 – 1430.

Rail Awareness Open Day is an information event to promote what ScotRail do for existing and potential rail users with reduced mobility or simply those who need assistance with their journeys. It provides a learning opportunity to those with reduced mobility on the level of service available and the support they can receive form ScotRail when planning and undertaking their journey by train. ScotRail feel it is important that they listen to and engage with customers with specific needs to get a better understanding of how best they can assist them and build their confidence when travelling with them. ScotRail want more people with reduced mobility to be using the railway and see trains as their preferred mode of transport, but want to make sure that the customers know what they can and what they cannot provide thereby managing their expectations. The event is open to all – including parents with young disabled children, older people with disabilities, elderly customers, carers and companions of people with reduced mobility.

On the day, the attendees will try a train as well which is why ScotRail will be utilising services with longer dwell times.
