Chiltern Railways is owned by Deutsche Bahn AG and is part of Arriva, which is responsible for Deutsche Bahn’s local and regional service outside of Germany.
Since winning the franchise in 1996, Chiltern Railways has run scheduled passenger services along the M40 corridor between London Marylebone and Birmingham Snow Hill and London Marylebone to Aylesbury via Amersham along the London Underground Metropolitan line. In 2002 we extended our operations as far as Kidderminster and in 2004 we took over services between Stratford-upon-Avon and London.
As one of the franchises forming the UK's National Rail network, we're dedicated to providing passengers with a safe, reliable, welcoming and value for money service which offers a real choice and a viable alternative to other modes of transport.
We provide a wide range of great value tickets and one of the most punctual and reliable rail services in the country.
Our Mission Statement:
To be the best Passenger Railway in the UK.
All day, every day, we aim to offer a safe, reliable, welcoming and value for money service.
Our business will prosper because customers use us repeatedly and recommend the service to others.
Our parent company is also involved with the running of the 'London Rail Concession', London Overground Rail Operations Limited (LOROL).
