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

Changes to data tables

1.   Network Rail Outputs and Indicators - Key Statistics: From the beginning of 2017, these statistics will be published on a half yearly basis rather than quarterly.

2.   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 these changes, 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.

Also available on the statistical releases webpage are 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 along with a methodology report and infographics.

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