ScotRail and Caledonian Sleeper agree to EMAs

Caledonian Sleeper and ScotRail have followed their English counterparts in accepting Emergency Measures Agreements (EMAs) negotiated with the Scottish Government. They will last for a minimum of six months.

During this period both CS and SR will receive increased payments to cover operating costs. Transport Scotland deems this as necessary due to reduced revenues. A small management fee will be paid at the end of the variation period, subject to satisfactory performance.

In a letter dated April 9, Scottish Transport Secretary Michael Matheson confirmed there had been an 80% drop in rail use compared with the corresponding period last year.
