LET'S GET SOCIAL

Community Rail Partnerships (CRPs) were first established in England in the early 1990s as part of a UK government initiative to involve local people in the development and running of local and rural routes, services and stations. We were the first in Scotland to become a designated CRP in 2014 under our former name.
