Mary Grant speaks at Public Transport Scotland 2023

On Wednesday 8th March 2023 CEO Mary Grant joined a panel at the Modern Railway's Public Transport Scotland conference in Glasgow.

Speaking alongside Bill Reeve, Director of Rail at Transport Scotland, Alex Hynes, Managing Director of Scotland's Railway, and Meirion Thomas, Railway Industry Association Scotland, the discussion focused on how the private sector can help to deliver a reliable and sustainable railway that meets the needs of passengers now and for the future.

Mary said: “In the last five years we’ve spent over £73 million in traction innovation. If you want to demonstrate value back to the government and to the various transport initiatives, we have a responsibility to say that we are prepared to put that investment into the network and not just look for the safe contracts, and demonstrate why we exist and can support the wider supply chain for both passenger and freight.”
