Seven per thousand

with one comment

Friday seats to spare, with higher capacity trains

According to the Department for Transport’s HS2 technical index supplement (November 2015), Autumn 2014 count data indicates that at present, 0.7 per cent of Virgin West Coast passengers across the AM and PM peaks are standing as trains arrive at/depart Euston. This rises to 2.4 per cent on a Friday PM peak.

So, in general, just seven in every thousand Euston peak passengers are standing.

But the Department claims that “Standing will become a major issue on ICWC services by 2033/34”.

In fact, the indications are that by using higher capacity IEP-type trains, standing on ICWC services would be zero by 2033/34.

Peak standing would go from nought point seven per cent, to nought point nought per cent, Fridays included.
