THE ScotRail Alliance is giving away £1 million worth of free off-peak tickets to some of Scotland’s top destinations.
The giveaway starts at 10am on Wednesday 6 September, and tickets will be issued on a first-come-first served basis.
Travellers can claim a maximum of two tickets and must use them between September 18 and November 30.
The giveaway is both a thanks to customers and an opportunity to showcase the huge variety of places that the rail network covers.
The ScotRail Alliance’s Managing Director Alex Hynes he hopes customers get the chance to enjoy Scotland’s beauty.
He said: “We’re in the middle of building the best railway Scotland has ever had and this leisure travel offer is part of getting customers involved. Scotland’s rail network offers some spectacular scenery and we’d love as many customers as possible to get out there and enjoy it.
“These tickets are a way of giving some of our customers a free means to do so. We expect high demand, so my advice is claim your tickets early and enjoy the journey!”
Humza Yousaf, Minister for Transport and the Islands thanked customers for their ‘patience’ while Scotland’s railways are ‘transformed’.
He said: “I am delighted to see the ScotRail Alliance deliver this leisure ticket giveaway as part of our ongoing efforts to recognise and reward passengers for their custom and patience while we invest £5 billion to help transform Scotland’s railways.
“This builds on the free week for regular travellers earlier this year following the essential works at Queen Street Tunnel and Winchburgh, which was a testing experience.”
