Student discount on scotrail train tickets

This petition had 8,086 supporters

A monthly train ticket at the age of 18 (or under) using a young scott card costs me around £50 to travel from Hamilton to Glasgow (30 min journey) Glasgow being my place of study. I travel at peak times therefore a monthly discounted ticket is the only way I can afford to get there. When I turn 19 I am no longer able to use my young scott card and will be paying double that - £100 a month, just to get to college which is expensive in my eyes especially for a student. I want scotrail to consider introducing a student discount for anyone studying at college or university a students life is not cheap and someone working could be on minimum wage. A 16-25 railcard is something I have considered however you cannot use this at peak times and peak times are the only time I travel for college.
