Following enquiries and complaints about the lack of ticket vending machines at Gleneagles Train Station, Luke Graham MP held a street stall petition to take to Scotrail.
Currently, customers travelling from Gleneagles Train Station are required to buy or collect tickets from either Stirling or Perth to be able to use any advance tickets or discount rail cards.
Mr Graham was joined by local activists and residents, while also visiting a number of shops along the High St.
Other issues raised on the day were bus services and parking in the town.
Mr Graham said,
‘Short notice trips can become a costly affair for my constituents as on-train purchases must be made at full price. This especially impacts young people, who have difficulty traveling outside of our constituency to get their tickets or who are unable to take advantage of young person’s discounts if they pay on the train.
Gleneagles is at the heart of Ochil & South Perthshire. I want to encourage as many people as possible to our constituency, the opportunity to buy & collect tickets from the station should help
