Welcome to Tonbridge Line Commuters

Tonbridge Line Commuters campaigns for better rail services in the Tonbridge area. Covering Tonbridge, Hildenborough and Paddock Wood stations, we are the largest passenger group of our kind in the South East.

We are totally independent and can therefore act in our members’ best interests by working with the train operators, bus companies, local and national government to help ensure a better deal for the travelling public in our area. This approach has delivered a number of victories in recent years, but our continued success depends on our membership – together our voice is strong and we can effect change.

Anyone is welcome to join us, and you certainly don’t need to be a regular commuter – we work on behalf of anyone who uses the trains or buses in our area. Membership is very reasonable, and there are a range of benefits. These include:

  • Two newsletters a year
  • Access to a committee actively working on your behalf

The more members we have, the more pressure we can exert to make sure we get a decent service now and in the years ahead. With major changes planned as part of the new South Eastern franchise, and challenges facing the Tonbridge-Redhill line, it’s all the more important that our voice is heard.
