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

We first drew public […]
Little cheer was spread on the Tonbridge to Redhill line this Christmas as GTR failed to provide anything even resembling a service. We all know that GTR doesn’t care about the Tonbridge to Redhill line. That much has been clear for years. Any excuse they get, they cut services and throw people on to buses. […]
