|Passenger Numbers Down At Putney Station|
Figures reduce but the station remains busiest station in the UK
Putney Station continues to be a busy station with 8.6 million passengers using it and is the 53rd most used station in the UK according to figures released this week.
There has been a drop of 2.1% in passenger numbers down from 8.88m last year and 8.7m over the same period (from April to March) 2017-18. This excludes disruption from the strikes in December.
Following the recent publication of South Western Railway’s (SWR) latest accounts which show that the train operating company is making substantial losses we asked the company to comment on the passenger figures.
“This year, passengers on our suburban routes will start to see the benefits of our £895m investment in Class 701 trains that will run on suburban routes and serve passengers in Putney.”
