Various Statistics on Rail Services To and From Dore and Totley station

Passenger Numbers

Passenger Numbers 1997-98 to 2015-16.
Estimated number of passengers who travelled to and from D&T station.  The figures are annual estimated passenger numbers based upon ticket sales i.e. tickets which mention D&T as start or destination station together with a proportion of tickets which are non station specific e.g. SYPTE TicketMaster and Derbyshire Wayfarer tickets. Figures extracted from the Office of Rail Regulation who are an
independent regulator, accountable through Parliament and the courts.  They produce annual estimates for all stations within Great Britain. (No figures for 2003-04.) Over the years the methods used for making the estimates have changed so may not be true year to year comparisons.
