Our objectives align with the Department for Transport's four key pillars for community rail:
  • Providing a voice for the community.

  • Promoting sustainable and healthy travel (including getting to the station).

  • Bringing communities together and supporting diversity and inclusion.

  • Supporting social and economic development.


All Community Interest Company (CIC) activities are underpinned by a primary economic, social and wellbeing focus to benefit communities and visitors served by railway stations in Gloucestershire. The Community Rail Partnership plays a ‘glue’ role by linking communities, planning departments and transport companies together.
