Community rail typically involves local people and organisations working in partnership to improve their local railways. Community Rail initiatives such as station enhancements and innovative promotional schemes can help get better value for money from the rail network.
This might include improving bus links to stations, developing walking and cycling routes, bringing station buildings back to life, art and educational projects, organising special events which promote the railway and its relevance to the community.
The Abbey Line Community Rail Partnership of which CDA Herts was one of the partners was set up in 2005 as one of the first designated Community Rail Partnerships. Abbey Line Annual Report 2013 2014 F2
