Dear Transport for London, Please provide any data you hold on ridership levels on the New Year's Eve night train that has run for many years from Liverpool Street Station to Enfield Town, Cheshunt and Chingford. This service sadly did not run 2022, 2022 or 2023. It ran 2021: Also 2019 and from our knowledge ever year prior.

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 21 May 2023 asking for information about West Anglia Night Train Ridership.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy.

Unfortunately we do not hold the information you require, as we do not hold data detailing the ridership levels of a given train. We only keep transactional data for a short period of time and any data we could have potentially used to estimate the number of journeys undertaken using the special services listed has since been deleted due to retention rules.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely

Graham Hurt
FOI Case Officer
