How busy is my train?

To help you decide which train to catch, we've been keeping an eye on how busy they are likely to be.

Not all of our trains have automatic passenger counting technology on board, so data is often collected manually. We will update this page when we become aware of changes.

Before using this tool, we advise passengers to refer to online journey planners or downloadable timetables to check the latest train times. Being based on recent data, this tool doesn’t take account of future events such as engineering works which may alter train times.

How busy do you expect my train to be?

Use the tool below to find out how busy your train usually is. Things can change though, so see How busy is my train today? by scrolling down for Live updates from the Information Team in our Control Centre.

Trains highlighted as busy have more than 50% people travelling, so you may have a more comfortable journey on a quieter service.
