Provenance at Euston

with 3 comments

Two thirds of morning peak passengers at Euston are ‘suburban’ (LOROL + London Midland), rather than long distance travellers, according to a table showing DfT and Transport for London counts. So, at Euston, a 3% increase in suburban travel has about the same volume effect as a 6% increase in long distance travel.

  1. Beleben, thanks for this useful data. It also indicates the growth in Virgin passenger numbers is much less than those on suburban services. In the morning three hour peak, there has been 4% growth between 2011 and 2013 while for the one hour peak Virgin numbers have decreased by 8%. In contrast suburban services have seen growth of 13% and 16% respectively.

    For 2013 arrivals during the morning peaks, Virgin trains are between 57 and 61% loaded on average while suburban trains are between 88 and 91% loaded.

    This does not make a case for the proposed intercity HS2 service.
