Welcome to the Hereward Community Rail Partnership

CURRENT TRAVEL ADVICE - if you can:

  • travel at off-peak times
  • use quieter stations and stops – get off a stop early if it’s less busy
  • keep changes to a minimum, for example, between bus and train
  • walk for more of your journey, for example the first or last mile
  • book your tickets online in advance or pay by contactless

You must observe social contact rules and wear a face covering when travelling on public transport in England.

Some people don’t have to wear a face covering for health, age or disability reasons.

  • Engage with train operating companies to identify service improvements
  • Make small improvements to local stations
  • Enable local people to have their say about railways in their area
  • Encourage greater use of the railway to travel both to and from our area
