Our world is changing at an ever-increasing pace. As traditional boundaries of space and place blur, increasing urbanisation and new technology is transforming the way we live, work and play.
The role stations can play in this shift is significant. Whilst stations remain the access points to the railway network, their role will need to evolve to keep up with the pace of change, whilst still meeting the needs of passengers, customers and communities.
Now more than ever, there is a huge opportunity for stations to become bustling, multi-modal hubs that are at the centre of movement for people, support inclusive, sustainable and economic growth, and improve the wellbeing of the communities they serve.
‘Tomorrow’s Living Station’, a report created by Network Rail and Arup, explores and identifies the future role stations will play in our towns and cities:
As the centre of movement for people
As drivers for inclusive and sustainable growth
At the heart of healthy communities
