Rail ticket sales - 2005 to 2017 - WS

The diagram shows how rail traffic (measured by tickets sold) has grown or shunk in the ten years since 2005 at each of the various stations in a region - in this case WS. Figures for 2009-10 are taken as 100%, and then each of the following years is shown for each station as a percentage of that figure.

Dark blue - over 500,000 entries / exits in 2005
Red - over 50,000 but less that 500,000 entries
Green - over 5,000 but less than 50,000 entries
Pink - over 500 but less than 5,000 entries

Average percentage from 2005 to 2016 is 255.62% over 13 stations in the area.

Data is for year up to 31st March (e.g. "2011" is 1st April 2010 to 31st March 2011). Figures are Department for Transport published figures for total ticket sales for entrances and exits at specific stations and are subject to the caveats in their reports. The graph excludes stations with less that 500 entrances / exits (or not open) in the year to 31st March 2005. Where a percentage is given in the final columns, it's the data for 2016 as a percentage of the 2005 and 2010 data; we do not calculate / display the percentage for stations without data or with very few passengers indeed in either of these two years as it could mislead.
