TOILETS at two major Scottish stations will be free to use from April 2019.
Network Rail managed stations Glasgow Central and Edinburgh Waverley, which charge 40p per visit, will scrap charges as part of a bid to improve passenger experiences.
A Network Rail spokeswoman said: “As part of drive to make our stations more friendly, accessible and open to the people who use them every day, we are making the toilets free from April.
“This is part of a series of improvements we’ve been making, including the introduction of water fountains, more help points, massive investments into station facilities and improvements for disabled station users.”
Latest statistics show that the nine Network Rail-run stations across the UK that charge for use of their toilets made a combined £3.1m in 2017-18 – down from £4.8m in the previous year.
Other major stations in Scotland, including Glasgow Queen Street and Haymarket, are managed by ScotRail and at present will still charge for their toilets.
