We are a voluntary group that campaigns directly for services on the Airedale line and on the routes from Airedale to Carlisle, Morecambe, and London. We liaise with the train operators such as Northern Rail and LNER as well as Metro and Network Rail. Our aim is to ensure passengers on the Airedale line continue to enjoy the best possible train services and station facilities.

AVRUG’s campaigning and liaison work is done by a small volunteer committee which meets about every two months to discuss developments and plan the way ahead. The committee is elected every year at the AGM which is normally held in Saltaire Methodist Church Hall – usually in April.
