Welcome to Railfuture

Transport systems in Paris make use of colour to aid passengers by allowing them to make decisions more quickly. The train information screens use a blue background for departures and green for arrivals. On barriers green means enter and red means exit.

The train information screens use a blue background for departures and green for arrivals. On barriers green means enter and red means exit.

Who we are

Railfuture is the UK's leading independent organisation campaigning for better rail services for passengers and freight. Railfuture is a voluntary group representing rail users, with 20,000 affiliated and individual members. It is not affiliated to or funded by train companies, political parties or trade unions, and uses one-member one-vote democracy.

Our cause

Railfuture campaigns for cheap and convenient rail services for everyone; better links for buses, bikes and pedestrians; policies to get more heavy lorries on to rail; new lines, stations and freight terminals – a better rail service and a bigger rail system for both passengers and freight. As well as working at local and national level with train operators and other stakeholders to secure a better railway, Railfuture makes awards to campaigners from its Fighting Fund to bring about improvements.

Rail user help

Our online guide for rail passengers will help you to get the best fare deal, enjoy your journey and deal with any problems which may arise.

What's on

As well as the expensive conferences organised by professionals, Railfuture organises two low-priced National conferences each year for rail users and user groups at which our RUG Awards are announced, and there are many free or low-priced events for volunteers such as Railfuture members.

Get involved

Our volunteer members in branches and around 300 local rail user groups campaign to get stations and lines reopened, and services and facilities improved, for the benefit of the community, economy and environment.

Over the past 50 years these campaigns have played a major part in getting over 370 new and reopened stations and over 500 miles of route to join the network.
