Commercial Partnerships Sounding Board has their say
- Commuting grew 8% during the first three months of this year, boosting railway revenue to the tune of £64 million – according to the latest GBRTT Train Travel Snapshot.
- Fewer strike days disrupted services after the first week of the new year, which helped the quarter-on-quarter comparison*.
- This pushed revenue to a record high since the start of the pandemic (£2.2 billion) – but GBRTT warns that, adjusting for inflation, this is just 70% of revenue (£3.2 billion) four years ago, with the inclusion of Elizabeth line figures also affecting historic comparisons**.

- Business travel revenue was up 6% on the previous quarter, but still accounts for a small share of the overall market.
- The second stage of opening the new Elizabeth line in November (Reading, Heathrow, and Shenfield connecting directly to central London) helped lift National Rail revenue from commuting by 3%.
