Fifers’ chance to quiz ScotRail boss

Fed-up Fife train passengers will have a chance to quiz ScotRail directly at a public meeting next week.

The event, organised by Lesley Laird MP, will take place at 7pm on Thursday, February 28 at Kirkcaldy Town House.

ScotRail director Alex Hynes has accepted an invitation to attend the open meeting and answer questions from the floor.

Lesley said: “Fife commuters are sick fed up of delayed, cancelled or overcrowded services on the Fife Circle and East Coast lines and that’s why I’ve organised this meeting.

“After a run of bad performance ScotRail promised better services for people returning to work in the New Year but failed to deliver on that pledge.

“It’s not acceptable to expect passengers to simply put up with this, and I’m acutely aware that while politicians can question ScotRail directly, Fife passengers have not been afforded that opportunity – until now.

“People deserve direct answers, and they definitely deserve better service.”

Members of the public are invited to submit questions and register their attendance in advance by emailing lesley.laird.mp@parliament.uk
