Scotland's transport minister apologises to rail travellers
Emergency statement by the SNP’s Humza Yousaf does little to deflect criticism over delays and reliability problems on ScotRail
Scotland’s embattled transport minister has apologised to passengers who have had “a bad experience on our railways” while insisting ScotRail had learned lessons as he made an emergency statement to Holyrood hours after Glasgow commuters faced severe disruption because of a damaged overhead power line.
Humza Yousaf, the Scottish government’s minister for transport and the islands, has come under increasing pressure in recent months as a catalogue of delays, overcrowding and disruption caused by major works from the Dutch-operated franchise has caused chaos across the country.
