The National Rail Trends (NRT) Portal provides access to up-to-date statistics held by the Office of Rail and Road (ORR).

Changes to the data portal

The report wizard is no longer available. The periodic data from those reports are now available within the Passenger and rail freight performance and freight rail usage themeseme from the following:

Changes to data tables

1.   Private investment in the rail industry: This table is published once a year with a quarterly breakdown. The publication of the 2016-17 data will be the last year that quarterly data is provided. From 2017-18, ONS will be conducting an annual investment survey with no quarterly disaggregation.

If you have any comments or queries on this change, please contact rail.stats@orr.gsi.gov.uk.


Statistical releases and other datasets

As part of our commitment to improving the quality of our statistics in line with requirements for National Statistics accreditation, we publish themed statistical releases. These releases provide contextual commentary on statistics across a common topic (e.g. rail usage) and aid the user in the interpretation of the data. A Quality Report detailing information on methodology also accompanies each statistical release.

We also publish factsheets to accompany some of the datasets on the data portal which are not part of the themed statistical releases, e.g. TOC Key Statistics, Rail Passenger Assists and Disabled Persons Railcards.

A dataset of Estimates of Station Usage  consisting of estimates of the total numbers of people entering, exiting and changing at every station in Great Britain is published annually.

We also provide data on request where possible and these are published on the additional datasets webpage.
