Citizens’ Rail toolkit  > Create better stations


Create better stations

Involving people with their local station brings big results.

When we work together, the rail sector, residents, passengers, volunteers and businesses can deliver stations that:

  • fit local needs
  • feel safer and look more attractive
  • operate more efficiently
  • have stronger links with their town
  • attract more passengers

This can be achieved at stations in any stage of their lifecycle – from those still in the planning stages, to older stations in need of rejuvenation.
