The National Rail Travel Survey (NRTS) dataset is comprised of two principal components. The London Area Transport Survey (LATS) was conducted in 2000 and 2001 and covered London and South-East regions. A second wave covering the rest of Great Britain was undertaken during 2004 and 2005. Through both of these components, every national rail station in Great Britain was included in the survey.

Full details of the National Rail Travel Survey methodology can be found in the overview report available on the Department’s website at this address:
