The Department for Transport receives demand and capacity information for services at selected stations based on counts carried out by each Train Operating Company (TOC). This information is provided to the Department by the TOCs in confidence, as it relates to the way in which train operating companies operate their businesses.
The Department publishes aggregated statistics showing overall passenger numbers and crowding levels into the major cities and central London stations in the publication ‘Rail passenger numbers and crowding on weekdays in major cities in England and Wales: 2018’. Information on the total number of seats and passenger numbers travelling from all locations into London Waterloo (via Vauxhall) is presented in the table below.
