Rail Delivery Group responds to ORR's station usage stats 2020/21
In response to ORR’s estimated station usage stats for 2020/21, Andy Bagnall, Director General at the RDG, said:
“The station usage figures show how the rail industry kept people moving for the first year of the pandemic. Some of the entries on the list reflect where people like key workers were travelling from and also the acceleration of changes to how people are travelling after the pandemic.
“Rail companies are working together to welcome people back and the recent increase in passengers continues to both reflect and support the nation’s recovery. We know that taking the train is much more than a journey as passengers contributed some £133 billion to the economy before the pandemic by spending in places such as shops, restaurants and hotels.”
