What we do
Rugby Rail Users Group aims to get the best possible train services and station facilities for rail travellers using Rugby station. We work with the train operating companies, Network Rail, national and local government to achieve this.
Recent successes include an extra through train between Rugby and the North West in the middle of the day, and an earlier first train to Birmingham on Sunday mornings.
Currently our main aims include:
Maintaining the existing train service levels and improving these where possible
More regular services between Rugby and the North West direct via the Trent Valley line
Later train services back from London and Birmingham on Saturday evenings
Maintaining and improving connections to destinations not directly served from Rugby
Maintaining and improving facilities at Rugby station
Improving connectional facilities between Rugby station and the town centre
