Rail station usage
A report which compares rail station usage, for each and every station by line or route.
- In 2013-14 there were 220 rail stations in Wales.
- There was an annual increase of 2.1 per cent in the number of station entries/exits in Wales in 2013-14 compared to last year.
- Cardiff Central remains the busiest station in Wales with around one quarter of all station entries/exits (11.7m in 2013-14).
- Of the of the 20 busiest stations in Wales, half are part of the Valley Lines network, not including Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street and two in North Wales at Rhyl and Wrexham General.
- Rail station usage in Wales accounts for around 2 per cent of the UK total.
Other patterns in the figures; in the year to 2013-14 and within the growth for Wales as whole
- An increase in entries/exists in the South East Wales region; with large recorded increases for some stations (e.g. Merthyr line) as ATW have put in ‘revenue protection measures’ (so some rail users at these stations are now buying tickets, so they are recorded in the data, whereas before they did not).
- Rail travel westwards beyond Swansea is broadly flat (despite growth at Gowerton and at Fishguard & Goodwick stations).
