Citizens’ Rail toolkit  > Who is the toolkit for?


You can make a difference

By working with schools, universities, businesses, volunteers and others, you can create stations and entire lines that are more attractive and welcoming, more responsive to local needs, and more closely linked with their local community.

Research has shown that this approach leads to:

  • additional growth
  • improved station environments
  • stronger communities

From organising gardening or art projects with rail volunteers – whose contribution is worth £3.4 million per year in the UK – to collaborating with local businesses to bring stations to life with stalls or “pop-up” shops, this toolkit is packed with ideas and practical tips to make it happen.
