A first class approach to a community website
The TransWilts community rail partnership is the smallest and newest member of the 50-strong national Association of Community Rail Partnerships. And in just three short years it has became a Designated Community Rail Service, incorporated into the GWR Franchise.
Started in 2013 the Community Interest Company set out to encourage and promote the increased usage of public transport for the benefit of the communities living and working in Wiltshire. Success has come quickly with the number of train services having already grown from 6 to 9 trains per day.
We have been pleased to play our part with a brand identity and the design, build and ongoing maintenance of the Partnership’s website. Volunteer admins use the back office on an almost daily basis, to add, edit and delete content on routes, events, activities and disruptions.
We also devised the website’s interactive map showing all seven routes in Wiltshire and extensive information on a number of the individual stations. The website was awarded Silver in 2015 by Railfuture, the UK’s leading independent organisation campaigning for better rail services.
