KiwiRail engages with communities in a variety of ways. One of them is through sponsorship of events and activities relevant to rail, the people who work in the rail industry and the communities that interact with rail.


One of KiwiRail’s most significant sponsorships is TrackSAFE NZ. TrackSAFE NZ is a registered Charitable Trust that aims to raise awareness about rail safety and educate the New Zealand public on how to stay safe around level crossings and the rail network. Further detail about the foundation can be found at www.tracksafe.co.nz

Rail Heritage Trust of New Zealand

KiwiRail also supports the Rail Heritage Trust of New Zealand which maintains records of heritage rail buildings and equipment, and encourages the preservation and restoration of rail heritage. This includes assistance to the National Railway Museum at Ferrymead in Christchurch.

Interislander sponsorship
