Are you Rail Ready?

Welcome to The Levenmouth Rail Ready Campaign

The Levenmouth rail link is set to transform the lives of people in and around Levenmouth. Approved in August 2019, not even a worldwide global pandemic has got in the way of our railway and it’s due to be open on time in Spring 2024 which is a huge opportunity for people to visit Levenmouth for days out, weekends and longer trips. By visiting the area, they are contributing to the local economy, creating jobs and sustaining livelihoods.

This campaign led by Levenmouth Local Tourism Association (LLTA) and supported by Fife Council (FC), Business Gateway Fife (BGF), Welcome to Fife (WtF) and Climate Action Fife (CAF) is designed to maximise the success of our tourism industry with the rail line opening. By opening up communication, sharing knowledge and skills, and pointing you in the right direction, we are sure this will be useful to you wherever you work in Levenmouth.

For Business Owners & Managers

Featuring up-to-date information on grants, training, support and networking, this information package has been designed to truly maximise your opportunities from the new rail link. 

To gain Rail Ready Accreditation, you need to meet the following criteria:

  1. Have 75% of your customer facing staff achieved 95% in the Levenmouth Essentials quiz. All the answers to the quiz are on the website, so ensure you and your staff are using the website and directing people there in the future! 
  2. Be online visible with easily accessible information. When planning a trip, nearly all travellers will research their destination online beforehand so having a strong online presence is key to maximising both your opportunity and Levenmouth as a destination. An up-to-date Google listing is required as it is the number one source of information for travellers. 
  3. Have a sustainability and accessibility policy in place – or be working towards one. We understand that not every business can be completely green or completely accessible. 
  4. Apply! Send an email to Matt, Project Manager for the LLTA at info@welcometolevenmouth.co.uk with your company name, names of the employees who have completed the Rail Ready Quiz and copies of either your sustainability and accessibility policy or evidence to suggest you are working towards them.
This process is designed to maximise the tourism offering of Levenmouth and put it back on the map as a destination to visit in Scotland. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be a “tourism business” all businesses need to work together as tourists may pop in to your place of business and that experience needs to be a positive one to ensure people positively promote the area, come back, spend money and support jobs in the area.
