There are a growing number of Community Rail partnerships across the country, acting as a bridge between local communities and the railway industry to produce a better train service for the community.

The Marston Vale line (from Bedford to Bletchley) was designated as a Community Rail Service in November 2006.

BRCC now also hosts the Bedford to St Albans City CRP. This relatively new CRP covers eight stations between Bedford (Midland) and St Albans City station.
