As we begin see some lockdown measures eased this week, our vigilant officers and network of thousands of CCTV cameras are continuing to monitor the network 24/7 to keep you safe.

Don’t forget you can text us on 61016 if you need us at any point in your journey.

If you need to travel on the network, please ensure you don’t leave any items unattended & if you put items in the luggage rack keep an eye on them.
If you’ve been victim of, or witness to, a crime on the rail network, text us to report it on 61016. @BTPWestScot @BTPNorthScot

As lockdowns start to ease over the next few weeks, there will be an increased presence of travellers on the rail network.

We continue to work closely with rail staff across England, Scotland and Wales to ensure your journey remains safe.
