Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 7 September 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what action it is taking to improve train services in the Dumbarton parliamentary constituency.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 14 September 2016

The Scottish Government is committed to improving rail services and connectivity within Dumbarton. We have, through the ScotRail franchise, increased the frequency of passenger services between Glasgow and Dumbarton from four to six services per hour and have continued this level of service following the completion of the Glasgow Queen Street tunnel improvements. Passengers in Dumbarton are now able to enjoy a more frequent level of service to and from Helensburgh, Balloch and Glasgow with improved journey times on the Balloch services.
