TfL Ref: FOI-3458-1819

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 18th March 2019 asking for entry and exit data for Westminster station on 15th March 2019.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.

I can confirm that we hold the information you require, which can be found in the attached spreadsheet (upon opening you may need to expand the column widths at the top of the spreadhseet to read the data in full). This data is taken from our ticketing system and represents the number of valid entry and exit taps at Westminster Underground station on 15 March 2019. A valid tap represents a customer validating a ticketing product (either an Oyster card, contactless payment card or magnetic paper ticket on a reader / at a gate). I have also included data from the 8th March and 22nd March (the Fridays before and after 15th March) by way of a comparison.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

Yours sincerely,

David Wells
