Local Rail Users' Groups

Rail Users Ireland is Ireland's National Rail Users Organisation representing passengers through out Ireland. Rail Users Ireland are members of the European Passenger Federation. This puts us in a strong position to represent passengers both in Ireland but also at the European level. A key goal is to bring Irish services in line with European best practice.

Rail Users Irelandrecognises that many issues and concerns are local and that it is those people who travel day in day out who have the greatest understanding of the issues they and their fellow passengers face. We try as best we can to represent everyone, but our lack of detailed knowledge of what is happening at your local station means we may not know of the unique situation and conditions you face. As a result Rail Users Ireland welcomes local people and groups to join together with Rail Users Ireland to fight for the common interest of the passenger.

Equally many issues are shared amongst all rail users. Together we can form a strong common front fighting for improved services, improved customer service, reduced fares, proper time-tabling, accessibility and station car parking.

What is key is that every group works together in the common interest of the passenger. By presenting a common front we together stand the best chance of getting a result out of Iarnród Éireann, the Railway Procurement Agency, Veoila, the Department of Transport and any other organisations involved in transport provision.

Our current local partner groups are:

Other groups we are aware of

  • Sallins
  • Portarlington
  • Portlaoise
  • Templemore
  • Mullingar

If you are local group fighting for improved rail services or are thinking of forming one please get in touch either by email info@railusers.ie or by contacting one of our public relations officers. We can provide you with a page with your contact details, the Rail Users Ireland site ranks second only to the Irish Rail site in many search engines when queried about rail services in Ireland.
