Fife, Edinburgh & Lothians stations to offer electric car charging

ScotRail Alliance announces 100 new electric car charging spaces

A number of train stations across the east of Scotland are set to benefit from new electric car charging spaces as part of the ScotRail Alliance’s drive to boost their availability across its 359-station network.
Bathgate, Cupar, Dalmeny, Dalry, Dunbar, Linlithgow, Musselburgh, Newcraighall, South Gyle and Uphall are just a few of the 50 Scottish stations to be fitted with free-to-use charging points which can charge two cars at once.
With the use of low-emission vehicles on the rise, the ScotRail Alliance says it’s keen to encourage their use, which will reduce carbon emissions by customers on their journeys to and from the station.
Construction work to install the first charger will begin in September, with all 100 spaces available from November this year.
The ScotRail Alliance’s programmes and transformation director, Ian McConnell, said: “As a low-carbon transport provider, we are always looking for new ways to encourage more environmentally-friendly travel.
“Through the installation of these 100 electric car parking spaces, we hope to reduce our customers’ carbon footprint from door-to-door.
“We have big plans to improve our car parks, and this is just one of the many improvements we have planned for the next 12 months.”
