FOI request detail

Request ID: FOI-4543-1718
Date published: 15 March 2018

You asked

Could you please provide me with the volume of entrants in to the underground network (feel free to include London overground too) by station, and time for the hours 06:00-10:00 and 16:00-19:00 over the last 5 years. In terms of granularity for time, the smaller the better. Up to 10 minute bins would be of use. Thanks in advance.

We answered

TfL Ref: FOI-4543-1718

Thank you for your email received by us on 15 February 2018 asking for information about the volume of entrants in to the underground network.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and our information access policy. I can confirm we do hold the information you require.

The information you asked for is available on our website using the following link: http://collab/lu_/fso_/comms_intra_/IntraBaseCamp/ID/SSD-data/Counts%20Data/Forms/Counts%20Data.aspx

The link has the Annual Counts data for LU stations for the past years. This is split by entry and exit, by 15 minutes, for typical weekday, Saturday and Sunday.

We are unable to provide the same data for London Overground as the dataset required is not held.

In accordance with section 21 of the FOI Act, we are not obliged to supply you with a copy of the requested information as it is already accessible to you elsewhere.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some 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
