This webinar – Encouraging and enabling modal shift through community engagement, explores how community rail can support modal shift from private car use to rail, other public transport, and active travel, highlighting community-led activity alongside initiatives from the wider rail industry, government and beyond.

It considers the insights community rail can offer and the potential role the movement can play in delivering the community engagement and empowerment needed to encourage modal shift. The aim will be to highlight the current opportunities to develop and maximise the benefits of an integrated, multi-modal transport network, and discuss how members can work effectively to make an impact locally to support positive behaviour change. Presentations from Richard Walker – DecarboN8, Jools Townsend – Community Rail Network, and Paul Salveson – South East Lancashire CRP.
