Not only is Scotrail the best, most punctual, service in the UK it has the biggest heart too. See these earlier reports as evidence of the first bit:

ScotRail punctuality performance still best in UK and actually improving more than ten times faster than UK average. Any comment, Ruth, Anas?

Scotrail outperforms services in England and Wales

Scotrail Alliance are offering two free return journeys per month to job-seekers and will cover the cost of the first month’s travel to a new job so that they can survive until that first salary payment at the end of the month.

This story brought a wee lump to my throat. I didn’t greet, I’m a Scot!

Seriously, what a brilliant idea. I wonder if any of the rail companies south of the border have similar schemes or would get you there on time anyway? Surprise me.

    So how does that work? How do you prove you are looking for a job? They are going to go broke if every unemployed will travel free.

      I guess you’ll need a letter from the jobcentre and the employer?

      It’s a wonderful initiative and will probably be an investment. I would be more inclined to travel by rail if I received help from them, when I most needed it, wouldn’t you?
