Why don’t you take the train?

Take the survey

Screen Shot 2014-07-22 at 08.41.24The brand new East Lothian Community Rail Partnership brings together train operators, community councils, East Lothian Council and local people to promote rail travel around East Lothian.

They are working to improve the range of information available at stations and keep stations looking beautiful, as well as finding ways to co-ordinate bus and train timetables and other practical measures. It is a significant achievement for East Lothian to have one of the first government supported partnerships in Scotland, and before they get started they’d like to hear why and how you currently use the train, and why not. Please help out by taking the 10-minute survey.
