Latest rail passenger numbers and crowding figures – Transport Focus response

28 July 2016

Responding to today’s publication of rail passenger numbers and crowding figures, David Sidebottom, Transport Focus’s passenger director, said:

“Overcrowding is a daily struggle for many commuters. Our latest rail passenger survey found that only 52 per cent of commuters were satisfied with the amount of room they had to sit or stand on the train.
“In the long term we need a big increase in capacity. This means continued investment in new and longer trains to meet existing demand, as well as ensuring that overcrowding doesn’t get worse as passenger numbers continue to increase.”
