Better rail services

As part of the Peninsula Rail Task Force, we're campaigning for rail improvements in the south west.

The 20 year blueprint for rail investment can be found in the documents of the Peninsula Rail Task Force website by following the link above.

Community rail

Local branch lines can be classified as community rail lines. These are promoted by community rail partnerships who work with the train operator to develop and grow the use of these lines.

We're a part of the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership which focuses on the Tamar Valley line into Plymouth, connecting Plymouth and Gunnislake and serving Devonport, Dockyard, Keyham, St Budeaux Victoria Road, Bere Ferrers, Bere Alston and Calstock 

Reduced price tickets for commuters along with other ticket and timetable information is given on the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership website.

Customer and Communities improvement fund (CCIF year 4)

Plymouth City Council was awarded £10,000 from CCIF 2019/2020. The objective of the CCIF year 4 in Plymouth project, was to raise the awareness of the existence of Devonport, Dockyard, Keyham, St Budeaux Ferry Road and Victoria Road stations. As part of the project signage has been installed indicating the direction to each station from key points in the local area or near areas of employment. Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership worked with Plymouth City Council to help deliver the project.

Leaflets have been produced to accompany the new signage indicating the location and range of destinations that can be reached from each station. Once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted we will look to print and distribute the leaflets found below.
