To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what information his Department holds on the number of rail journeys made in (a) peak and (b) off peak fare times in the last quarter of (a) 2020 and (b) the same quarter in 2019.
29 October 2020
The Department does not hold this information.
Information on the number of rail passenger journeys by ticket type is collected within the rail industry’s LENNON (Latest Earnings Network Nationally Over Night) ticketing and revenue database, for which the Department has an access agreement. However, information about the time and date a journey took place is not recorded as many tickets, such as season tickets, offer flexibility in travel times.
