Our Network

Our Partnership

By developing strong partnerships with schools, workplaces, communities and local stakeholders, Kent Community Rail Partnership promotes two local rail lines, delivering passenger growth and improvements to rail services and station environments.   We take the railway out into the community, engaging new users; helping them choose rail and active travel for more journeys.

Our Lines

The Medway Valley Line runs alongside the beautiful river Medway connecting  Tonbridge and Strood via Maidstone, the County Town of Kent.  Direct services to London operate from Maidstone West, Snodland and Strood in on weekday mornings and evenings using Javelin High Speed trains.

 

SwaleRail is the Sittingbourne to Sheerness line which connects the Isle of Sheppey to the rest of Kent. Some direct services to London run on weekday mornings and evenings.

 

Train services on both SwaleRail and the Medway Valley line are operated by Southeastern Railway Ltd, part of the Govia consortium.

 

Community Rail Partnerships (CRP) encourage the support of railway lines and stations by the local community comprising railway operators, local and parish councils, schools, businesses, rail user groups (RUGs) and other community organisations. CRP's are managed to fit local circumstances, recognising the need to increase revenue, reduce costs, increase community involvement and support social and economic development.

 

The Partnership has been hosted by Sustrans since April 2014.
