Abellio could lose Scotrail contract if service worsens
Transport Minister Humza Yousaf has warned Abellio to improve the Scotrail service or risk having the contract taken away from them.
The MSP has warned that the Dutch firm, who took over the service in 2015, that they could be removed from operating the service if the poor service continues.
More than 14,000 people had signed a petition called for Humza Yousaf to take action against Abellio due to the poor service.
