Local commuters have been “short-changed” by the introduction of free wi-fi at the country’s railway stations, a north east MSP has claimed.
Conservative Nanette Milne said she is disappointed that no Angus stations were included in the Scottish Government’s announcement last week.
Dr Milne said: “I am sorry that the SNP Scottish Government has short-changed Angus commuters once again by not including a single Angus station in its flagship free access wi-fi funding for Scottish railway stations.
“As someone who uses the train every week to commute to Parliament, I know that many local Angus residents commute from Arbroath, Carnoustie, and Montrose stations.
“Improved wi-fi connection would allow many business commuters to remain connected and work while travelling. Improved wi-fi would arguably also encourage more people to travel by rail.”
The new service is scheduled to be introduced by December next year.
