Welcome to Community Rail

Welcome to community rail where we focus on giving a voice to local communities and helping them connect with the stations and rail network that serve them, to add social value and promote this accessible and sustainable form of transport.

Through community rail we aim to support social inclusion, community wellbeing and economic development whilst reducing social isolation through partnership working with local volunteers, charities, businesses, elected members, agencies, schools and colleges, community rail partnerships, operators and local authorities.

You can read more on how our creative station adoption groups have enhanced their stations, and our wider community rail projects, below:
