Community rail partnerships and station volunteer groups are encouraged to get involved with this year’s Community Transport Week.
From 16-21 October, communities across the UK will celebrate the vital role and inspiring work of community transport in helping millions of people to stay independent, participate in their communities and access essential public services and employment.
The theme of this year’s Week is ‘Bridging the gap; uniting communities’, and will highlight how accessible, inclusive, and affordable transport is fostering stronger and more connected communities.
Through various activities, such as public campaigns, celebrations, educational workshops, and special events, 2023 Community Transport Week seeks to foster a sense of unity and solidarity, reminding us of the power of transportation in promoting social inclusion and ensuring that no one is left behind.
The campaign toolkit contains digital resources, a campaign planner, and details on how partners and stakeholders can join in the celebrations.

Here at Community Rail Network, we are keen to find out more about how our members are working with their local Community Transport organisations. Please contact our Communications team as soon as possible to let us know what your plans are for the campaign so we can help support and share your messages, and get in touch with Gary Shipp to tell us how you are working together with Community Transport organisations in your area.
