Passport to Safe Travel

Community Rail Lancashire Young Person’s Passport to Safe Travel has evolved following five years of experience and knowledge developed whilst working with over 5,500 primary school children. This is recognition of the 6 hours of study on rail history, use of timetables, safe travel and railway related safety issues.

On completion of the Education Programme each child receives a Passport, which enables them travel, free of charge for 3 months, on the Colne to Blackpool South and Clitheroe to Manchester Victoria services when accompanied by a fare-paying adult.

The Passport to Safe Travel was entered into the 2014 National Community Rail Awards in October and took first place in the ‘Involving Young People Category’
