It fulfils a variety of travel needs from business and leisure to daily commuter services, including cross border services; it supports rural services and the needs of freight customers alike. Scotland’s Railway operates the largest suburban rail network outside London providing links between communities and employment, industries and markets. It contributes up to £1.3bn each year to Scotland’s economy.
