Face masks will be available free of charge at Dalmuir station from today.

Customers making essential journeys must wear face coverings when travelling on public transport after the Scottish Government made their use mandatory from today (June 22).

The free masks will also be given out at Glasgow Central and Queen Street stations, for a limited period of time.

ScotRail staff members have been provided with face coverings, masks, and visors to help keep them, and customers, safe.

David Simpson, ScotRail operations director, said: “The position on face coverings is now absolutely clear and we are urging customers to take collective responsibility and follow the Scottish Government guidance on their mandatory use.

“We are doing everything we can to help customers get used to the changes in rail travel and that’s why, for a limited time, we will be providing face masks at all major stations. But Scotland’s Railway can’t guarantee physical distancing at all stages of a customer’s journey.

“The message remains the same as it has been since the start of the pandemic: only travel if your journey is essential and follow our five rules for safer travel. It will help to keep you, your fellow customers, and our staff safe.”
