Free wi-fi for ScotRail

ScotRail is introducing free wi-fi on the new Class 380 fleet, the operator has announced.

All 38 trains will be equipped with the technology by March 2014, with funding from Transport Scotland. It forms part of a wider ambition to provide wi-fi across the Scottish railway.

Steve Montgomery, ScotRail managing director, said: “It is exciting that people will be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi on board our largest fleet of electric trains.

“We are confident that the expansion of wi-fi will be warmly welcomed by our customers, who increasingly want to stay connected during their journeys, whether for business or to chat with friends.”

Nomad Digital director, Haydn Abbott, said: “We’re delighted to help connect yet another UK transport company with on-board wi-fi connectivity – especially ahead of such an exciting year when the eyes of the world will be on Scotland.”
