The Association of Community Rail Partnerships – ACoRP – is a federation of over 50 community rail partnerships and rail promotion groups.

We are an organisation of ‘do-ers’, focused on practical initiatives which add up to a better more sustainable local railway. Improved station facilities, better train services and improved integration with other forms of transport are central to the work of ACoRP and its members.

The Government’s Community Rail Development Strategy provides a framework for partnerships to improve the effectiveness of local railways in meeting social, environmental and
economic objectives.

The work of ACoRP and its members is applauded in the Government’s White Paper ‘The Future of Rail’ and in the House of Commons Transport Select Committee report ‘Rural Railways’.
