Notes on the latest estimates station usage data
The latest estimates of station usage data are based on ticket sales in the financial year 2011-12 and covers all National Rail stations throughout England, Scotland and Wales. The estimates are subdivided by ticket type (full, reduced and season tickets), whilst information on the county and region of each station is also provided.
The dataset contains estimates of the number of passengers travelling to and from each station (entries and exits). They are based on ticket sales data from the national ticketing database and estimates of travel using zonal/multi-modal tickets sold by Strathclyde Partnership for Transport and English Integrated Transport Authorities (formerly PTEs). There are limitations to the dataset and these estimates should be treated with caution.
Pre-release access to the 2011-12 data in advance of 24 hours was granted to the British Transport Police Authority, who required the data ahead of publication so that it could be included in their charges model.
