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 Beds & Herts CRP. This relatively new CRP covers eight stations between Bedford (Midland) and St Albans City station.
