Passenger Count

The group have been counting the number of passengers using some services departing Ashchurch for Tewkesbury since August 2010. We conduct quarterly full counts, where members of the group physically count all passengers using the train on that particular day and receive information from passengers travelling on other trains. Consistently these numbers, when approximated over the year, indicate a higher volume of passengers than the official figures.

This provides a valuable insight into the actual number of passenges using Ashchurch and can be used to illustrate the potential demand for additional services, primarily through a comparision with the service level at other stations attracting similar numbers of passengers.
