2012 Passenger survey finds small drop in numbers

November 13, 2012

For the first time since FOWS started making passenger counts in November 2007, this year’s survey found a slightly drop in passengers using the station on a “typical” Thursday morning.

  • The total number of passengers using the station from the first train at 0622 through to 1330 fell 7% from 717 to 663.
  • Peak time travel has held up well (virtually unchanged from last year).
  • Off-peak numbers fell by 12.5%  (we believe this may be due to this year’s count taking place 2 weeks earlier than last year and therefore picking up less Christmas shopping traffic).

For full details of all our passenger counts from 2007 until the present, please see the Passenger Numbers page on our website.
