New community rail and destination toolkit

We’ve worked with Gloucestershire Community Rail Partnership to launch a new toolkit: ‘Connecting Climate, Community & the Visitor Economy’, which was launched with two webinars for UK destination management organisations (DMOs) and Community Rail Partnerships (CRPs). 

The toolkit features tips, case studies and ideas for action and has been designed to highlight the opportunities for better, more climate-friendly travel within the ‘rail for leisure’ market.   The toolkit also aims to help bring together DMOs, train operators and community rail partnerships to realise the potential for rail, other public transport and active travel options in relation to tourism.The two webinars featured an insight into the new toolkit, and featured case studies from a range of DMOs and CRPs. 

You can watch recordings of the webinars here: Webinar for UK destinations, Webinar for Community Rail Partnerships 

You can download the toolkit from the Gloucestershire Community Rail Partnership website here. 

The toolkit and webinars are part of a funded project sponsored by Great Western Railway and Cross Country Trains. 

To put the learnings from the toolkit into practice, the Travel Foundation is facilitating an innovation session with stakeholders from the Cotswolds on 9 February. The workshop will equip participants from DMOs, CRPs, rail operators, the private and third sectors with tools and ideas to work collaboratively on common challenges, capitalise on shared opportunities and harness the potential of sustainable travel to meet net zero goals and further enhance the visitor experience.
